While having a passionate and serious attitude makes
one intense – the ladies of INTENSITY quartet bring not only a serious quality barbershop sound but also some INTENSE
fun! They represent Emerald City Chorus and Sweet Adelines International entertaining audiences with their smooth 4-part
a cappella style.
INTENSITY Lead, LISA MURRY has twenty years of barbershop experience
and is a Certified Assistant Director and lead section leader for Emerald City Chorus. She has served on the regional
level as Education Coordinator. During the day she works at CCH as a Senior Software Support Representative but music
is her passion. She shares this passion with her jazz musician husband Ray and her two sons, Ray and Tyler. She enjoys shopping,
traveling, and scrap-booking.
The smooth Bass of INTENSITY
is CINDY DUGGAN. Cindy serves as bass section leader for Emerald City Chorus. Having been in Sweet
Adelines since 1991 when her mother enticed her to join the “Coronado Country Chorus” in Lyons with her. She worked
for the Lyons Salt Company for twenty-eight years, eighteen of them underground as a drill operator. Cindy re-married in 2006
and moved to Andover. Her husband Wayne volunteers as the chorus Santa for the Christmas Season and is a Sweet Adeline groupie.
Between them they have four children, Bill, Kara, Joshua and Chris, and seven grandchildren. She enjoys making beads, wire
wrapping jewelry and making handbags with her mom.
WINGATE, our INTENSITY Baritone
is carrying on a family tradition, as her father sang for most of his life in one barbershop quartet or another. Tracy
spent many years as a corporate trainer in the Washington DC area, but moved to Wichita 6 years ago. She now keeps very
busy taking care of her three small boys, her husband, and her 2 dogs. When she is not singing, chasing her children
or cleaning, you can usually find Tracy at the gym or settling down with a cup of tea and a good book. She is currently
training for her first 5k.
CLARE PAUL, the tenor for INTENSITY, has been singing for as long as she can remember, in choruses,
quartets, trios, and by herself, though she has found the backyard flowers or family pets to be undemonstrative audiences.
Her life goals include the completion of a socially significant compilation entitled "Songs of the Ice Cream Truck",
a tribute to the neighborhood purveyors whose dedication to their trade rivals the US Post Office. Occasionally she joins
her husband on motorcycle trips and has learned that the winds of Kansas are more challenging than any mountainous terrain.
She is an engineer by day and a singer at heart, which holds her in good stead for her role as current chorus team leader.
For your next special occasion, have some INTENSE FUN and let the ladies of INTENSITY quartet show you
how it’s done!
