About our director

Our Director, Cheryl Wilcox, shown here with her mother, Barbara Gerstner and her daughter Megan.  It's all in the family - 3 generations of barbershop harmony.


Cheryl Wilcox became the director of FVC in 2002. Her background in music, including over 25 years as a sweet adeline, has given Cheryl a strong foundation to base her skills on as a director.  Her knowledge, enthusiasm and love of barbershop is inspiring and exhilarating!


Cheryl received her musical "basic training" at Hartford Conservatory of Music.  Her love of barbershop began as she watched her mother sing with FVC and it grew stronger as she sang as a young member of the chorus herself.  Cheryl became an accomplished quartet singer, placing as high as 11th at the International level.  She's now singing baritone with the  2014 Region 1 fourth place medalists, Off Kilter.


Under Cheryl's direction, FVC earned a second place medal in the 2007 Harmony Classic, an international competition of the top five midsize (30-60 members) Sweet Adeline choruses in the world.  In 2012, the chorus placed first in its regional competition, making them eligible to compete globally in Hawaii against 34 other choruses from around the world. And in 2014, Cheryl's expert direction once again found the chorus winning their division at regional competition. They will compete in the Harmony Classic in Las Vegas, October 2015.


Other achievements under Cheryl's direction include finishing second in 2004, 2005, 2007, and 2009 in the Region 1 midsize chorus competition, and winning those competitions in 2006 and 2008.
