Cheryl Brzezowski, Caitlin Burns and Teri Jo Ritz are the Queen City Sweethearts, a local acapella trio.

They have been singing together for the past several years and have a repertoire of popular songs from the 1930s to the present day.  They also have a program specific to the Christmas holiday. And member, Teri Jo Ritz says they sing because they love to spread joy,

“We sing for a variety of reasons, but whenever we sing publicly, it is for a good cause. We have performed at various venues including senior/ assisted living facilities, ECMC, Mercy Hospital, Hertel holidays and the Towne Player’s holiday variety show / food drive. We always perform at no cost to the venue and any donations we receive are, in turn, donated to a specific charity.”


You can find the Queen City Sweethearts on Facebook. Please feel free to contact them if you are interested in having them perform at your venue.


The trio will be performing at The Totally Buffalo 716MAS Festival and the charity they’ve selected to benefit is Buffalo’s Good Neighbors. (About Buffalo’s Good Neighbors: “It is our mission, with the help of our community, to serve local individuals in need through supportive donation assistance.”)
