Ruth Perry (Assistant Director)
Ruth is a charter member of Harmony in Motion, having joined the chorus (then known as Sounds of Harmony) in January of 1990. She initially started singing in the bass section of the chorus. However, when the quartet known as "The Musical Exchange" formed with a tenor, baritone and two basses, they all decided to change parts, "for the fun of it". The tenor became the lead, the baritone became the bass, one of the basses became the baritone, and Ruth was left with the tenor part! After many years of singing bass in the chorus and tenor in the quartet, she made the switch to tenor in the chorus as well. The saga doesn't end there, as Ruth is now going back to her roots and singing bass in the chorus (as well as some tenor for a while yet) and tenor in the quartet "High Hopes".
Ruth has retired from her career in business and is now able to devote more time sharing her musical knowledge with our chorus. She has lived in Sussex County most of her life and has two grown children and three grandchildren.
