Meet our Team


Colette Mayers

Colette joined Sweet Adelines in 2004 and has immersed herself in all things barbershop since day one of her journey. While primarily singing the Lead part, she has also sung Tenor and Baritone. She has been on the management team in a variety of positions, as well as the music staff since her first year. She loves her quartet, Steppin’ Up! and feels incredibly blessed to be able to bring together both her love of singing and her love of directing with this wonderfully talented group of women 

Susanna Sorensen

Susanna was born and raised in Germany and moved to Colorado in 1993 where she found Sweet Adelines. She has been singing baritone from the start with a short visit to the bass section due to a shortage of basses. During her 20 plus years with Del-Rose Chorus she has been a section leader, chorus president, assistant director and front line Director. Now a member of Grand Mesa A Cappella, she enjoys being Co-Director with Colette Mayers. She continues to sing as a member on the risers and with Steppin’UP! Quartet.
