The Sharon Men’s Club has been extremely fortunate to have Sandra Evans as Musical Director and Accompanist for its choral group The Hits and Mrs. for the past seven years and with many more to follow. Because of Sandra’s patient, leadership, and artistic abilities The Hits and Mrs. have become a great addition to the Club and wonderful and uplifting venue to the people that view its concerts. Sandra puts the theme and the songs for each concert together and then with the Choral Group they decide which songs to keep in the concert, which will be solos, and which will be sung as a group. Then the practice begins!
Sandra is a resident of Sharon, Massachusetts where she lives with her husband, Jerry. She graduated from the College of New Jersey with a B.A. in music teaching and performance in both piano and voice.
