The word "Serendipity" refers to a "fortunate happenstance" -- and is a well-penned description of this female barbershop quartet.  Indeed, the members of this group found something special when they weren't even looking!  While these ladies share a love of four-part harmony, they share a special friendship as well. Mary Rose Cameron (tenor) is a third- generation barbershopper and has sung with BGC since 1995.  She is a Tenor Section Director and member of BGC's Music Direction Committee. Kerrie Pogodzinski (lead) has sung with BGC since 1996. She is a Lead Section Director, member of BGC's Music Direction Committee and performs in BGC's front row.  Prior to Serendipity, Kerrie sang in Stylin' Quartet and earned the Novice Quartet Award in the Region 16 Contest. Diane Porsch (baritone), BGC's front-line director since 2001, is a life-long musician.  Her Sweet Adelines career began in 1974, and her involvement is extensive: she is currently a Master Director, International Coach, Certified International Faculty Member, a Certified International Showmanship Judge, Vocal Teacher, Music Seminar Facilitator and participates in Sweet Adelines’ Education Direction Committee (and these are the things she's doing now - this list doesn't include her "past" positions and involvement!)  Di previously sang lead for 7 years with BGC's comedy quartet, Sitcom.   Caren Chaffee (bass) has sung with BGC since 2000.  She is BGC's Assistant Choreographer, Bass Section Director, member of BGC's Music Direction Committee and performs in BGC's front row.  Harmonies define many quartets, but Serendipity's close friendship is their most distinguishing characteristic.
