The Harmony Fusion Chorus of Sweet Adelines is fortunate to have two sets of sisters that come together once a week to do what they love: singing and performing with other women on the risers.
Harmony Fusion has the pleasure of introducing Debbie Nunn and her sister, Billie Harris. Debbie has been a member of Sweet Adelines for over 30 years. Billie retired and needed something fun in her life, so Debbie suggested singing.
They have now been singing and traveling together as “sisters in harmony” for the past six years. Whenever there’s a “singing” convention in town or out of town, or just a local performance for the chorus, they are always each other’s company.
Debbie sings bass and Billie sings lead (melody). Debbie makes her home in San Lorenzo and Billie lives in Hayward.
The other set of sisters is the “Boles Sisters”, Jean Marie and LeeAnne. Jean Marie sings baritone and Lee Anne sings lead (melody). The twins are from a long history of “barbershoppers” .
Their history goes back to Idaho with their grandmother andgrandfather on their mother’s side. Their grandmother was a Sweet Adeline and their grandfather a barbershopper. The love of four-part a cappella singing migrated to California when Jean Marie and LeeAnne’s mother sang in the San Lorenzo chapter of Sweet Adelines, the “Belles of Eden”.
Their father is currently singing with the San Lorenzo chapter of the men’s barbershopsociety, the New Dimension Chorus. LeeAnne and Jean Marie live in Hayward.
All the sisters, Debbie, Billie, Jean Marie and LeeAnne along with the entire cast of 36-plus members of Harmony Fusion Chorus will present a variety show, “Return to Vaudeville”, on Sept. 29, 2012, at the Danville Village Theater, 233 Front St., Danville.
