Rendezvous competed in our first regional competition in the spring of 2009. We are excited and gearing up for our second competition.
Melissa Malesh leads our group with a fabulous mix of fun and dedication to the craft. She is an exemplary elementary school teacher who applies the same level of excellence to her singing as she does to the classroom. We are so grateful to have her at the helm. Melissa also sings with the Upper Chesapeake Chorus. When Melissa is not singing (or perhaps even when she is), she is raising two teenagers alongside of her wonderful husband, Bill.
While new to Rendezvous, Linda Brown is not new to barbershopping - having sung with The Pleasure of Your Company for 9 years (they still get together for special events). Linda also sings with the Upper Chesapeake Chorus and has been with UCC for 16 years. She has served as the Team Coordinator, Show Chair and is the current Bass Section Leader for the chorus. In addition, she is the Team Coordinator for the Region 19 SAI Regional Management Team. In her spare time, she is a Technology Integration Teacher in Baltimore County Public Schools and aspires to be a school librarian. Linda has 3 grown sons and is looking forward to the time when she has grandchildren to spoil. In the meantime, she spoils her very cute and adorable dog, Turk!
Meg Baker hits all the right high notes as our tenor extraordinaire, both in Rendezvous and in the Upper Chesapeake Chorus. She is such a gift to our quartet! Meg has one teen still at home, several grown children and a few grandchildren (she was a child bride ). Meg's husband, Ed, holds down the fort while Meg is off creating harmony. Meg works for Harford County as a computer programmer.
The quartet is rounded out by our baritone, Cheryl Foley. Cheryl stumbled upon the vocal music scene after years of instrumental music. Cheryl spends her time learning the weird baritone part, sharing the parenting of two children with her husband, Gene, and teaching middle school science. She is a member of the Upper Chesapeake Chorus, as well.
