Vickie Maybury Guest Coach

October 5, 2020 - 6:15pm -- Susie Chirafis

"Artistry is an outcome of an emotional connection,” says Vickie Maybury. Vickie is on the current Sweet Adeline Board of Directors and is an Expression Specialist. She's also the master director of the esteemed Skyline Chorus of Denver, Colorado, which is currently  (2020) the 4th place chorus in the world. We were very fortunate to have her teach and encourage us tonight on our Zoom rehearsal. She drove home, the point about getting to that place where we can trust that the technique will be there, so we can tell the story to the audience in a way that will make them want to come along with us.

Tony DeRosa Guest Coach

October 5, 2020 - 6:06pm -- Susie Chirafis
Our guest August, 2020 was Tony De Rosa. Tony started out by saying, "I'm happy to be here, but I don't even know why I'm here." Somehow, he managed to cobble together a brilliant hour of teaching, coaching, storytelling, bubbling with a straw, and singing."
Fast forward to 2020, and we're talking about singing lead in a gold medal quartet 4 times over. Tony is also the director of the winning Toast of Tampa chorus as well as the men's chorus, Heralds of Harmony. They have a vast collection of medals as well.
