Featuring International Faculty - Peggy Gram



Peggy Gram is well-known in Sweet Adelines International as an accomplished performer, director, faculty member, and leader.

Peggy was awarded the SAI lifetime achievement award in 2010 for her many contributions including being international president, achieving "master director" status and certified Showmanship Judge. She is a Queen of Harmony, twice winning the International quartet championship with "Ginger 'n' Jazz" (1987) and "Rumors" (1999). At the age of 22, Gram became the director of the Top of the Rock chorus in 1972 and retired as co-director.

Saturday evening:

Watch exciting performances and pay tribute to those representing Region 5 at International competition in St. Louis in October.

Singing with the Champs - For $1, you can sing a song with the River Blenders!  For $5, you can direct the chorus (or call for someone else to direct them!)  Bring lots of single bills so that you can sing with them many times throughout the evening!  Also, sing a tag for $2 or a song for $5 with one of our fantastic Internationally bound quartets!
