 Verve was formed in May 2014 and works diligently exploring the art of a cappella singing with an emphasis on the barbershop style!

Tenor Averi Brickson (BASC) is a lifelong barber-shopper, successful business owner and Mom to three energetic and adorable children!

Lead Julie Harrelson (PEC)is an overly involved school volunteer and Mom to a teenage son who is perfecting the art of driving and looking for the perfect girlfriend while making Julie crazy!

Baritone Kim Machek (DVC) affects positive change in her community through involvement in numerous outreach programs. Kim is also an empty nester as both her daughter and son are in college and away from home!

Bass Jen Higgins (CAL) is a wine club manager and Mom to an extremely active pre-teen son and precocious toddler!

Verve is devoted to family, community, music and each other and looks forward to learning and growing in the a cappella art form!
