Tony has been singing publicly since 3rd grade, performing in choruses and choirs throughout secondary school and into college. At the University of Colorado, Boulder, he studied music theory and performance. Tony has directed three men's choruses. He developed a particular love for a cappella harmony while in junior high school, and sang in his first competitive barbershop quartet in 9th grade. He eventually went on to sing for nearly 20 years with an internationally-ranked medalist quartet, Bank Street, that performed throughout the U.S. as well as in Canada and England.
Today, in addition to directing On Q, Tony is a vocal coach, arranger, and Certified Music Judge for barbershop contests. He is actively involved in promoting a cappella music and arts collaboration throughout the Albuquerque community, and especially enjoys working with young people to help ignite in them a life-long love of music.
Chelsea Swisher President
Soon after moving to Albuquerque in 2016, Chelsea made friends with a door-to-door Bernie campaigner, who happened to be a singer and a friend of one of our own barbershopping ladies. The rest is history! Chelsea owns an online vintage clothing retail store. In her spare time she has been volunteering for domestic violence/sexual assault awareness for over ten years. She is also a Francophile and a party host extraordinaire.
Carlie Capener Secretary
Naomi Davidson Treasurer
Naomi has been involved with music from a young age, including stints in concert band, marching band, church choir and band, bell choir, jazz band, orchestra, and various choirs, not least of which include the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra Chorus. After a hiatus due to small children, she joined On Q Chorus in November 2016 and quickly discovered the joy of harmony and friendship inherent to barbershop, as well as an enhanced social life thanks to her new friends in On Q. Outside of the music world, Naomi works in the environmental science field, and enjoys baking, puttering around in the garden, and hiking...when not chasing after her kids, that is.
