Anticipation, an award-winning Sweet Adelines’ quartet, will be a featured act in the Sierra Gold Chorus Christmas Show, “A Musical Cure for Christmas Chaos,” on Saturday, Dec. 8, at 2 p.m. at Combie Bible Church, 22924 West Hacienda Drive in Grass Valley, near Lake of the Pines.

The Sierra Gold Chorus, under the direction of Barb Tincher, sings traditional and modern Christmas songs along with other songs.

Anticipation is lucky enough to combine family with a longtime love for barbershop music.

Baritone Cheri Jump, formerly of the international medalist quartet Razzcals, is the sister of tenor Kim Eckert and mom of lead singer, Nikki Gloudeman, who joined the organization at age 12. The family enjoys the unique privilege of having three generations of barber shoppers. Mom, grandma and quartet coach Joan Eckert will celebrate 50 years as a Sweet Adeline next year.

Courtney Anderson, the bass singer, formerly of the Young Women in Harmony second-place international quartet Heavenly, has become like an adopted family member and is also a “barbershop brat” who grew up around the musical style.

Her father, Brent Anderson, has been a member in the men’s barbershop society since 1975 and she has been attending his shows and performances since she was a child.

Advance  tickets are $15 for  adults and $7 for youth 16 and under.

Tickets may be purchased in advance by calling Jackie Dow at 530 885-3801. Tickets at the door will be $18 for adults and $7 for youth.
