ASSISTANT MUSIC DIRECTOR Denise Kelleher learned to play the piano at an early age, which set the stage for a love and appreciation of music. From that time on, Denise has been involved in a variety of musical adventures. Over the years, she sang with many church and community ensemble groups including “Encore” and the “SJN Lakeside Dinner Theater” group, and she participated in SJN’s Christmas music celebration.
Ladies barbershop style singing was introduced to Denise fifteen years ago. She sang with “A Classic Sound Chorus” and a quartet for five years. About ten years ago, she began singing with NoteableBlend. She has enjoyed working along with other chorus members to achieve a perfect blend of sound in the spirit of harmony. She has been a lead section leader for a few years and has been acting as assistant to the director for the last year.
For the past 25 years, she has lead the music component for a special needs group in Stoughton. It has been a joy for her to share in the contribution of each member’s unique gift and voice. Yearly, Christmas and Easter pageants have been a highlight and an opportunity for all to share their joy and voices with their families and friends.
