To The Max represents Crosstown Harmony Chorus, and though we have been Sweet Adelines for many years, only two of us have been in quartets before, many years ago. So really, we’re a quartet of newbies! We enjoy singing traditional barbershop music, especially swing tunes, but we’ve lately delved into 80s pop.
Judy Murphy, Lead, joined Sweet Adelines only 3 years ago. She has five sons, and feeds us each Wednesday evening before quartet rehearsal. It is her dog, Max, to whom we sing every week.
Beth Meyer, Bari, is a Milwaukee native, and recently returned to this area after living in Chattanooga, Tennessee for over 20 years. There, she joined SAI in 1992 and was part of the Scenic City Chorus and Chattanooga Harmony and 1St Pitch quartets. We’re so happy she came back home.
Deb Wenzel, Bass, is a 17 year veteran of Sweet Adelines, yet was never in a quartet until now. Besides singing with Crosstown and To The Max, Deb plays the guitar and has a song library in her head that is second to none.
Toni Mitt, Tenor, joined Sweet Adelines in 1990 and sang for 6 years, even joining a quartet. But, as often happens, life got in the way and she took a 16 year hiatus until returning in 2013. She has quite an eclectic taste in music, listening to Big Band jazz and 60s Prog rock one after the other.
