Mad Caps Quartet

A hat for every song...

still looking for a song for every hat!


Niki Fillipone loves to sing, has three grown kids, and the very best of hubbies. She is also a proud "mummo" (a moniker bestowed by one of her grandchildren) to grandaughters Scarlet, Stella, and Opal Mae. She's always been a reader and enjoys working with kids of all ages, so it seems a natural fit that she worked as a K-12 Librarian in the Hoosic Valley School District for about eighteen years. She recently retired to pursue other interests, including singing!


Fran Pinto, Formerly Stewarts' "hat lady,"  Fran recently retired and is a mother of two awesome daughters and is a proud grandmother of Emerson James and Annabella Grace.A member of Sweet Adelines for over 30 years, and currently acting as an assistant director in Capitaland, Fran also served as a section leader, and sings bass in both Capitaland and Saratoga Soundtrack choruses! In her spare time (and nice weather), she enjoys kayaking and riding her Indian Chieftain motorcycle! 


Nancy Plaat, lead, started singing barbershop as a baritone in May 1978 as part of the Latham Circle Chorus, which then became the award-winning Capitaland Chorus. She has been married to Mark since 1982 and they are the proud parents of two boys, Louis and Daniel, and proud grandparents of Adelaide, Ellanora, and Seraphina. This is Nancy's 8th quartet in her barbershop singing career. She loves to perform and hopes that our "Mad Cap" style brings joy to audiences everywhere.


Marilyn Semerad, fondly referred to as "bisectional," started her barbershop life in 2002 as a lead, then switched to the tenor part and is currently singing tenor with the Mad Caps quartet. Marilyn is recently retired having had a long career in the scholarly publishing field, and is now a snowbird, along with her husband Mark. She's happy to have found other singers who share her sense of humor/silliness.
