I have officially been a Sweet Adeline in the Lehigh Valley Chorus for 25 years. I grew up with Barbershop music in my house. My father has performed with The Lehigh Valley Harmonizers for over 45 years, and I was attending shows and competitions for as long as I can remember. I sang in choruses and musical theater throughout high school and college and needed to find a place to continue doing that once I graduated. I gave Sweet Adelines a try and decided it was just what I was looking for. I started out singing Lead for the chorus, but for many years now I have been enjoying the fun harmony of singing Baritone.
As Assistant Director, I help Marilyn out whenever she needs it. I will run a rehearsal when she isn’t there and direct a performance if she can’t attend. I also help with choreography to visually enhance our performances. I feel that movement helps our singing and makes it more entertaining.
Being a member of LVC has helped me learn and grow both musically and personally. The ladies in the chorus are a very special group of women who support each other and share a love of music, performing, and having fun. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?
