It's all about the Bass....

“Hello everyone!  Music has been my life as long as I can remember.  I loved to sing as a young child, and of course joined the choir in public school.  At the age of seven I started taking piano lessons and continued my studies till the age of 25.  In high school I joined the band and played the French horn for 5 years.  After high school I started taking on my own piano students part-time.

 In 1981 Randy and I were married and a few years later became the proud parents of a son and three years later a daughter. A wife, a mother, a piano teacher and then our church we attended asked if I would become their organist.  I agreed but YIKES! , they wanted me also to lead the congregation with my voice as well.  Timing was perfect, as I soon saw an ad in the paper for 3 free singing lessons with Bluewater chorus.  I thought well it can’t hurt and maybe I’ll gain the confidence I need to sing in public.

In November 1998 I joined this wonderful organization.  I have made so many friends, shared so many wonderful moments.  Memories to last a lifetime.  Since joining I have had many interesting tasks.  I have always been in the lead section and soon took the role as their section leader.  I became a member on the music committee, I also became a member of the board as music committee liaison.  I have been chorus Historian, Birthday Announcer, Video tech person, Coffee Club organizer, Assistant Director, Associate Director, Co-Director with Sue Murdoch and now have taken on this very important role as your new director.

 I am very excited about this new position in my life.  Sweet Adelines has successfully helped me gain the confidence I needed as I now am music director of Hepworth, Sauble and Wiarton Catholic churches.  I have learned so much over the past 21 years with Bluewater.  I have had wonderful educational opportunities, made more friends than I can count, have sung in 3 quartets, and I continue to share this love of singing 4 part Barbershop Harmony. 

I look forward to continuing this journey with you as your Director.”
