Left to Right: Isie, Kathie, South Paw, Merideth, and Laurie
Kathie has been involved with music for many years, but truly found her musical passion when she discovered SAI and acapella four-part harmony. Having sung the lead part with several quartets (including one top ten Regional Quartet), Kathie has found that there is a great satisfaction and lots of hard work involved in making those chords ring!
Merideth has been singing for most of her life but is relatively new to Barbershop and quarteting but loves every minute of it. She has quickly developed a love of 4-part harmony as a bass. Merideth has worked for many years in college student housing. She also loves to bake and spend time with her family.
Laurie has been a member of Sweet Adelines for over 19 years, and has switched from the lead part to baritone. (Is she nuts?) She is a "newbie" to quarteting and is just loving singing with these wonderful women. Laurie is a recently retired family nurse practitioner. She now has more time to spend with her husband Mark hiking and kayaking, and enjoying and performing music of all kinds.
Isabel (commonly known as Isie) has been a Sweet Adeline for more than 30 years, singing tenor. She has sung in several quartets, and enjoys performing with Into Wishin’ for all types of audiences. Isie and her barbershopper husband Mike try to participate in as many Barbershop activities as they can.
