  Eager for the opportunity to make history, Sweet Adelines members lined up to participate.
    "The enthusiasm of Sweet Adelines International members and fans was instrumental in achieving this record," said Kelly Kirchhoff, Director of Communications for Sweet Adelines International. "Instructing thousands of participants simultaneously is an extremely impressive accomplishment."

 Music professional and past Sweet Adelines International Quartet Champion Peggy Gram led the lesson by demonstrating inspiring techniques for integrating the voice into the art form.

    Gram called the experience of teaching the Largest Singing lesson exhilarating. "It was inspiring to demonstrate our unique style of music to thousands of singers from around the globe. While obtaining the world record is terrific, what's even more important is that it allowed us the opportunity to show how rewarding it is to sing barbershop harmony," said Gram after accepting the certificate for World's Largest Singing lesson.  

     Sweet Adelines members are women who excel in singing the unique musical art form of barbershop harmony.
   The chorus includes women from ages 16 to the mid-70s, representing nurses, teachers, attorneys, students, retirees and others.
