Shanna has been involved with barbershop since a teenager when she was asked to fill in as tenor with her Dad’s quartet (she was then kicked out when they found a man) and in 2009 she took over as MD at 5Ways Chorus. In the 10 years she has been in charge of 5Ways she has taken them from 48.9% to 66.7% and is determined to reach the top 10 in 2021, after they have taken a year out this year. She has also sung with a ladies chorus and quartet and is hoping to get back to more singing this year. Outside of barbershop she holds a degree in Marketing, and is Marketing and Sales Officer for Sulgrave Manor, a heritage house. She is also a qualified singing teacher, runs a mixed a cappella chorus, coaches other clubs, MD’s and directs local amateur musical productions, as well as occasionally treading the boards herself! She also has three other boys at home (1 husband and 2 children) as well as a working cocker spaniel called Saffy.

The role of Director of Marketing and Communications sees Shanna spreading the word about all of the excellent work BABS and its clubs are doing, both to its members and to the outside world. She looks after things such as HEX, the website, branding and social media. Marketing is in Shanna’s blood so this role means she can enjoy two things she loves at the same time – marketing and music.
