Turbulence began singing together in February 2016. After just three months together the group won their regional competition and qualified to compete at Sweet Adelines International Convention in October 2016.
Though the quartet is relatively young, the members are all very experienced and have a combined 78 years singing as Sweet Adelines. Tenor Julie Baxter has sung in 10 different quartet combinations, and is a leader on both the BASC and DVC showmanship teams. Lead Kristi Bispo is one of the Lead section leaders in BASC and has sung in 4 prior quartets. Baritone Laura Bode has also sung in 4 previous quartets, and is an assistant director with BASC and a showmanship team leader. Bass Julie Starr has sung in 8 previous quartets, and has been directing Bay Area Showcase Chorus since 2002.
"The Julies” on the top and bottom of the barbershop cookie are both music nerds and love tinkering with arrangements, and the barbershop filling of Kristi and Laura have both spent many years singing each other’s parts in the past.
Turbulence enjoys entertaining and is excited to see where the future will lead.
Songs include: Some Enchanted Evening, Flirty Eyes, I Love Jazz Medley, Scarborough Fair, Walkin' On Sunshine and more...
