Kathy Allison - Tenor
I have been a Sweet Adeline since January 1, 2000, so this is my 20 year Anniversary! I've been a member of Top of the Rock Chorus, Little Rock, Arkansas since 2004. I started my SAI career with Crystal Chimes Chorus in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas in the Fall of 1999 as a guest Christmas caroler. I've sung lead for 17 of those years and switched to tenor 3 years ago. I've found my home! Singing is like breathing to me, so I guess you could say it's pretty important! Quarteting is the most fun you can have! We would love to sing for you!
Patty Barnes - Lead
I have been a member of Sweet Adelines since Feb 8, 2015. I am currently a member of Top of the Rock Chorus in Little Rock, Arkansas. Why did't I find this wonderful group of women earlier?! I have a musical background, starting with piano lessons at age 5 and continuing through a BFA in Music from Tulane University. I was pulled away from music for many years but found it again through my church choire and Sweet Adelines. I will never let it go again! Rich harmonies have always been a favorite of mine and there is nowhere better than the barbershop world to create and enjoy them.
Sharon Gardner - Bass
I have been a member of Sweet Adelines since May 1, 1981. Currently I'm a member of Top of the Rock Chorus in Little Rock Arkansas. I started as a Lead, then switched to baritone because I love singing harmony, then because a voice teacher told me I should sing high I switched to tenor and when Treble organized I became a bass and love it. I started singing with St. Paul Chapter in St. Paul, MN fpr 5 uears, then Twin Cities Show Chorus in Minneapolis, MN in 1986 until we moved to Arkansas in 2005. I joined Crystal Chimes Chorus in Hot Springs Village in 2006 before joining Top of the Rock in 2012. Sweet Adelines has made my life rich with song. My brother sang with a mens chorus when he was in high school and that is where I learned about barbershop harmony. It took a few years but I made it and never turned back!
Kristi Ponder - Bari
I have been a member of Sweet Adelines since 7/5/2001 and am currently a member of Top of the Rock Chorus in Region 25. I'm from a musical family and have been singing for as long as I can remember. My mother taught my siblings and me to sing harmonies and, being the youngest in the family, I was often taught whatever harmony wasn't already being sung. Is it any wonder that I found my "home" as a baritone?? Close harmonies, ringing chords, and the deep personal relationships I have developed in Sweet Adelines make my heart smile and enrich my life in ways I never imagined possible.
