Thank you to our featured faculty for working with us to facilitate our
first ever 100% online event!
It has been an atypical year for Region 21 as we continue on this journey of isolation from normal chorus life. We have learned that we are resilient and creative as we continue to grow and thrive together in the virtual world. Our Regional Management Team didn’t hesitate when it became apparent that a virtual Summer Seminar was going to be necessary. We have developed new platforms and technologies to present this first ever virtual webinar for our members and to make it available to all Region 21 members at no charge.
We are so excited to welcome Brittany, Mia, Caitlin and Stephanie to spend the day with us. The very talented women of LoveNotes quartet have lots of experience. They have been singing together for over a decade, beginning when they were teenagers. In 2005, as Underage Quartet, they won the Young Women in Harmony Competition in Greenville, SC. They continued to grow and learn, competing regularly, until 2014, when as LoveNotes they became the Sweet Adelines International Queens of Harmony in Honolulu, Hi. Virtual rehearsals became a necessity for them long ago, as each of them went on to college and adult careers. Each of them has continued to develop skills as singer, performer and educator and we are privileged to welcome them as faculty for 2020 Summer Seminar Camp Orange Blossom Unplugged!
We’re also pleased to have Region 21’s Krista Moller as faculty for this special event. Krista has been a member of Sweet Adelines for over 10 years and is a baritone in C’est La Vie Quartet and the Scottsdale Chorus. For the past three years, Krista has worked for PwC as a CPA Assurance Associate and founded the Phoenix PwC Diversity network. In 2019, Krista joined the Sweet Adelines International Diversity & Inclusivity Task force and is leading the Pilot program and the development of the chorus toolkit. Her passion to make the world a more inclusive and equitable place has pushed her to spend many years working on Diversity & Inclusion initiatives and helping to educate others on these important topics.
