Our 2023 Woman of Note is someone who never fails to step up when volunteers are called for, showing that she takes the Sweet Adeline and the Crosstown Harmony mission, vision, and guiding principles to heart. Whether it’s helping at making pizzas, sorting and bagging shoes, slinging suds at the Oz Fair, or just helping to set-up and take-down equipment each week at rehearsals, this member is always willing to help. Along with that, our Woman of Note always seems to learn new music quickly and knows it very well, which is a great help to those in her section. And she almost always says “yes” when we have chorus performances.
Speaking of sections, this member started out in 2016 as a baritone, took a bit of time off, and re-joined us in 2019 as a bass when we really needed more voices in that section, meaning she had to re-learn all the songs she’d learn as a baritone! Since then, her talents and support in the bass section has been extremely helpful; she even uses her own software to supplement learning tracks for the whole bass section.
As a great asset to our chorus, in her positive attitude and in her willingness to help with just about everything, we’re proud to announce our Woman of Note for 2023, Sherry Bentz!
