We are thrilled to announce our new director
Gayle Burton, PMP
Gayle has been a Sweet Adeline since 1988 and brings with her a wealth of experience. She has a degree in music and taught HS choir for many years. During that time she performed in many professional and classical choral and vocal jazz ensembles. She is no stranger to the International stage and has competed with both choruses and quartets at the International level landing in the top 5 in Chorus competitions with the Rich Tones, Pride of Baltimore, and Toast of Tampa, as well as the top 15 in quartets. Gayle brings the best of barbershop and contemporary music to our rehearsal always keeping us smiling and on our toes!
She has been a member of Sweet Adelines for fifty-nine years. She earned Master Director status in 1995 and has directed the Sound of Sunshine since its charter in 1977 until her retirement in April 2017.
Nancy has sung with regional championship quartets, achieving a silver quartet medal at the international level. She is also a member of the Region 9 Education Faculty. In addition to directing our chorus, she coaches several Region 9 choruses and quartets.
Truly from a “barbershop family”, both of her parents have extensive barbershop histories and her sister, and daughter are all members of our chorus.
