Joining Chinook Winds Chorus in 1977 was a great career move. It balanced my busy life as a Mom and active Registered Nurse. Sweet Adeines has been an invaluable resource in Music Education, Administrative Leadership, Group Development and Motivation for Adult Learners. As a past Music Director of Chinook Winds and a Quartet singer I am grateful to be recognized with achievement levels beyond my dreams. I have received encouragement and support from Chorus Members to help them achieve their dreams. I look forward to returning that support to the present and next generation of Sweet Adelines. This is a wonderful life long hobby and I recommend it to any singer who enjoys the acapella art form.
