Sweet Adeline of the Year

Each year the chorus selects a member to be Sweet Adeline of the Year.  The SAY is the woman who has  served the chorus in an exceptional way, and done the most to help the chorus in the past year.  This year our winner is Nancy Burns!


 Nancy Burns - Sweet Adeline of the Year

When we think about consistency and showing up even when it isn't fun, this year’s Sweet Adeline of the Year has done this every week, with a smile. Rehearsals, meetings, task forces, committees - all of it.

She has shown initiative and improved herself through educational opportunities to make herself a better assistant director, and has been Chorus Secretary for 6 of the 8 years of her Shades membership. Her dedication to barbershop singing is further demonstrated by being part of a registered quartet, @skylarkquartet.

For all of these reasons, it is our sincere pleasure to announce that Shades of Harmony’s Sweet Adeline of the Year 2020-2021 is none other than... Nancy Burns!
