Sweet Adeline of the Year


Every year, VIRGINIA COAST CHORUS recognizes and celebrates the contributions of a “Sweet Adeline of the Year”.   For 2016 this honor went to

Michelle Hartman!


Michelle Hartman is a long term member and has contributed much over the years.  Her positive attitude is contagious and she is a great ambassador for our chorus and for Sweet Adelines!

Michelle served as Show Chair for our very successful 2015 show. She was organized, proactive, and professional, and did a great job delegating show duties to sub-committee chairs and giving them leeway to take charge of their areas of responsibility.  This spurred lots of creative energy, as was evidenced in the final product. 

            Michelle has been our homework scribe for a couple years now, and the email she sends us each week is relevant and fun, capturing the lesson, hot buttons to work on, and often including an outside reference to further enhance the education.  

She is also the chorus voice placement guru.  She excels at making the newcomer feel welcome and at ease.  She is friendly and professional and does a great job working with guests during business to bring them up to speed on our organization and expectations.

Michelle exemplifies the spirit of Sweet Adelines and has truly been an inspiration to watch, work with, and sing beside this past year. We are lucky to have her energy and enthusiasm in VCC, and we are thrilled to honor her as our 2016 Sweet Adeline of the Year.
