Buffalo Gateway Chorus is proud to have the following quartets associated with our chorus. We endorse all of them as excellent singers and entertainers, suitable for any occasion...
Ladies First is a female barbershop quartet created in 2013. All four members sing with the Buffalo Gateway Show Chorus (BGC). Members include (from Left to Right) Kim Hooker singing tenor, Sharon Wolff singing bass, Bonnie Sugrue singing lead and Bonnie King singing baritone.
Prior to Ladies First, Sharon Wolff performed with four competitive quartets, winning multiple medals, and won the regional championship with Vocal Motion in 1994. Sharon is the Assistant Director of BGC, a bass section leader and has been in Sweet Adelines for 24 years. Bonnie King has been in Sweet Adelines for 12 years. She previously sang with Spindrift Quartet and Resolution Quartet, who placed 4th at the 2015 Regional Contest. Bonnie King is head of BGC Membership, part of the Music Direction Committee, and is a Music Mentor. Kim Hooker is Administrative Co-Chair of BGC’s The New Member Group, which assists new members in their first year with the chorus. Kim has been singing tenor with BGC since 2007. Bonnie Sugrue joined BGC in 2011. She sits on the Music Direction Committee, is a music mentor and is the Co-Chair of the Public Relations Committee.
We are Mood Ring Quartet, newly approved, and affiliated with Buffalo Gateway Chorus. All four of us are members of BGC:
Lead: Madeline Anderson-Balmer

Pre-COVID you would have seen Heather and Amy singing with Stay-Tuned Quartet, and Madeline and Beth with Fever Pitch, but moves and life happen. Now We're excited to be working together towards competing as a quartet in regional competition Spring 2024. We're also mega-focused on working with the chorus now to be our absolute BEST for International Competition in Louisville!!! Watch this page for more from Mood Ring Quartet!
