SVC Musical Director

Kerry Denino

The Scioto Valley Chorus is pleased to present to you our director, Kerry Denino. Kerry is a charter member of SVC and has been with the chorus since its inception in 1988. From the beginning SVC wanted to look and perform like the top choruses in the organization. Therefore our choice of music, costumes and choreography throughout the years has been guided by that principle and helped to mold us into the chorus we’ve become. Perhaps that is why the Scioto Valley Chorus consistently places in the top ten when they compete in Sweet Adelines International (SAI) Competitions. When it comes to snap and sparkle, Kerry certainly knows how to bring out the best in each of our members, blending a wonderful sound that pays homage to the American art form of barbershop singing. 


Kerry has been surrounded by ringing chords since childhood and jokes that she came out of the womb singing. At the age of 13, she was harmonizing with her mom and growing her own love of barbershop music. In addition to being a leader in SVC, Kerry has sung in many quartets throughout her years. She earned several regional champion quartet medals and international finalist awards in Success Express, and then later became a “Queen of Harmony” with SPOTLIGHT quartet when they won the Sweet Adelines International championship in 2005. Just this past year she received her 2nd title of “Queen of Harmony” with Lady A Cappella in Louisville, KY.


Kerry’s directing accomplishments also include the title of Master Director – 700 of the Scioto Valley Chorus which she earned in 2013. In addition to her “real job,” Kerry coaches other quartets and choruses around the region. She’s married to Steve who is the CEO of the Barbershop Harmony Society, and their 2 sons are avid music lovers.
