|Congratulations to Darlene Rogers, recipient of the 2020 President’s Lifetime Achievement Award! Darlene has been a Sweet Adeline for 52 years, and in that time her influence has extended to the many singers for whom she has served as coach, director, and vocal teacher. She is a member of the Sweet Adelines International Faculty, the Education Steering Committee for Regions #10 and #25, and was a member of the 1975 Region #10 Champion Quartet, Lady Luvs. She has previously served as assistant director of OK City Chorus and director of Oklahoma Jubilee Chorus and Texas Harmony Chorus. Along with Dale Syverson and Peggy Gram, Darlene produced the popular Sing, Baby, Sing series of educational materials. Her expressive style of teaching makes her a popular instructor, and we salute her dedication to barbershop singing and to the education of Sweet Adelines around the world.
