Meet our new members

This spring we welcomed a new crop of people to join the ranks of Six Degree Singers. Twelve vibrant singers auditioned for us on a cold February night. After a thoughtful deliberation, we invited six of those singers to join our ranks. We'd like to take a minute to introduce these fine people to you.

Arnold McNeal - Bass
Arnold is a resident of Germantown, Maryland and spends his days working as a paraeducator with children with special needs. When he's not making the world a better place, he enjoys enjoys traveling around the globe.

Mike Held - Bass
Mike is a graduate of James Madison University and was a member of The Madison Project, the premier a capella group at JMU. Mike is an IT professional when he’s not singing in SDS.

Benjamin Groves - Bass
Benjamin, like half of our new singers, is a scientist. He comes to SDS from the west coast. He also plays piano and tuba. Benjamin routinely has the choir in stitches with his deadpan humor and dry delivery.

Robert Bruce - Tenor
Robert is another of our crop of scientists. He just moved to the Washington, D.C. area from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where he was part of a chorus called Cantari.

Libbi Rivera - Soprano
Libbi is one of our two sopranos. She is a recent graduate of University Delaware and currently teaches music in Howard County.

Jean Ennis - Soprano
Jean is a pharmacist from Buffalo. After spending time in Florida and northern Pennsylvania, she settled in the Washington, D.C. area. An avid cyclist, Jean often rides bikes with her husband around the DMV.

The six new members add an invaluable amount of vocal experience and attitude. We can’t wait for you to meet them in person at our spring concert series, Nine Greek Muses!
