Edye Papp sings Bass.
Born in El Paso, Texas, Edye was a service brat until her senior year in high school when her father retired from the Coast Guard. Guess that is why she is such a chatter box! Singing barbershop only happened later in her life. But as they say “Once you sing barbershop, you are hooked for life “Thirty plus years later” and after performing in four International contests (8th place her chorus’s best) she is still going strong loving every minute. Edye loves playing golf with her husband, Joe, and boasts a 17 handicap. This Christmas two of her three sons, and her two young grandsons, 18 and 17 years old, played. What an experience – not the playing golf part, but the grandkids driving the carts. Whew! Edye sang in the Robed Choir in high school and has sung for many church choirs. Retired in 1997 from Electrical Design, Edye now owns her own Real Estate company “One on One Realty’.

With sing alongs and a community chorus, Susan incorporates music and singing everyday in her work with seniors as a wellness director at a senior living community. Her first introduction to singing barbershop was with the Sweet Adalines in 2010. Susan is fairly new to singing acapella, but is enjoying every moment of learning the ins and outs of barbershop harmony.
