From the Scottsdale Chorus Website
Lori Lyford came to Scottsdale Chorus from Yakima, Washington, where she had been the director of the Rolling Hills Chorus in Region 13. Within a few short months (in her FIRST appearance on the International Competition stage!) she directed the Scottsdale Chorus to a 3rd Place win. Today she is one of the most sought-after coaches in the barbershop genre, conducting training seminars and coaching sessions throughout the United States and abroad. Whether playing a boom whacker or performing a solo in a tender ballad, Lori is the ultimate performer. She is the driving force behind the success of the Scottsdale Chorus.
It's not too late! Join us on the road to New Orleans and experience a cappella harmony like never before on the International Stage as we compete against the world's best choruses. Email [email protected]
