Alexa Beal, Director
Alexa was first introduced to barbershop when she was just eight, as she tagged along with her parents at contests, concerts, coaching weekends, and rehearsals. She holds a Bachelor's degree in music with a focus in voice from Plymouth State University, and has dabbled with many musical genres including performing in musicals and operettas, classical choirs, and college-style a cappella. Over the years, Alexa has directed and sung in barbershop choruses and quartets, and she currently sings lead with Aged to Perfection, a women's quartet made up of two mother/daughter pairs (she is one of the daughters!). Aged to Perfection placed 3rd at Harmony Inc.'s 2016 International Competition, and won the 2016 Area 2 Quartet Championship. Alongside her parents, Alexa was co-director of the Harmony Night Chorus, a mixed chorus in Lebanon, NH, for about 6 years. She has recently been accepted into Harmony Inc.'s Contest and Judging Program and is training to become a Certified Singing Judge. Alexa lives in Charlottesville, VA; by day she uses her MBA working in Human Resources, and by night she's singing, practicing, directing, teaching voice lessons, or coaching quartets.
