RiversEdge Chorus Leadership

RiversEdge Chorus thrives in part because of the commitment of the people in leadership. Here are a few of the people that make our ensemble tick:

 

Bianca Dixon - Our Director

With 29 years as a Sweet Adeline, Biance brings a wealth of experience and energy to our chorus.  She has earned numerous quartet medals in Region 13 and is currently the lead singer in Amore, a classy, sassy long-distance quartet.  She was a member of Spokane Falls Chorus and Spirit of Spokane Chorus for many years, before joinging RiversEdge.  She is also a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society, and directs the Lake City Harmonizers of Coeur d'Alene.

 

Bianca is a vocal teacher at the Creative Music Learning Center in the Spokane Valley and also gives private vocal lessons to children through adults.  She has directed both adult and children's groups as well as singing with various a cappella groups in the area.  Beiance is one of ten siblings, has one son, and is nw a proud "glama" of sweet baby Ella Rose.  And if that isn't enought, in her spare time Bianca works a day job in finance.

 

We are happy and exicted to have Bianca as our director in this new chapter of RiversEdge.  It's going to be a wonderful journey for us all!!

 

 

 

Jane Weber - Assistant Director

Jane4Jane claims to be just a country girl from Montana.  She attended Business School in Spokane, married Martin, her husband of 50 years, and now has four children and five grandchildren.  Jane visited Lilac City Chorus in the fall of 1980, and says it is "one of the best things I have ever done!  What other organization can you join where you make life-long friends, travel the world, and get to play 'dress-up.'"

 

Over the years, Jane has done a little of everythng with Sweet Adelines International.  She has sung with choruses as large as 73 members and as small as 14 members, and has competed four times, or is it five, at the International level.

 

Jane is more than just a country girl.....she stepped in as our director until we found Toni, and now works with Toni to create a directorial team that is hard to beat!  She says she is "just going to get 'on harmonizing' til the day she is laid to rest!"
