Karen Sweeters is the heart and soul of Harmony on the Sound Chorus. With over 35 years in Sweet Adelines International, she has gone from singing "on the risers" to directing and growing the chorus into what it is today. Known for her easy going manner and creativity, she decided early on that her chorus would rise to new heights by doing something different. With Lyricist Jane Tamarkin, she started preparing the competition songs as parodies. Over time the judging panels began to look forward to hearing what she would come up with.
Karen is a Certified Judge in the Expression Category and has escalated to the top level of Sweet Adelines musicianship as a Master Director. During the contest "season" she jets off to other regions where she joins her peers in adjudicating their quartet and chorus competitions. She is also a valued coach to many Sweet Adeline Choruses around the world. Sometimes she travels on her own, and other times she travels as part of the "Stage Coaches" which is made up of Jane Tamarkin, Gina Kaiser and her. In addition to being the in-house lyricist, Jane is a performance and characterization specialist. Gina is a choreographer, visual specialist and Certified Showmanship Judge.
Come for a visit to meet Karen. We know you'll love her as much as we do!
