Sally Wallace: A Sweet Adeline for Life

Photo credit: Jake ParrishSally Wallace, former director of Coeur d'Alene Chorus and the 2016 Heart of the Northwest Award recipient, was recently featured in the Coeur d'Alene Press newspaper. Sally says, "The local newspaper puts an article in the Sunday paper each week spotlighting one person. Because of our [chorus'] 30-year anniversary, they decided to run an article about me. They sent a reporter and a photographer to our home and interviewed me for an hour or so!" 

Ever an ambassador for Sweet Adelines International and the barbershop artform, our favorite part of Sally's interview was when she was asked if she ever thought the day would come when she's done with Sweet Adelines.

Sally's reply: "That's not in my plans at all," she said, beaming her Sweet Adeline smile. "The Sweet Adeline Chorus is such a wonderful place to be and I really encourage other women, of any age, if you like to sing, come and see what we have to offer. It really can change your life for the better. Besides, it’s a lot of fun.”
