The Hallmarks

The Hallmarks

Lead: Liz Robertson. Tenor: Jo Ann Karaff. Baritone: Helen Shores. Bass: Jackie Harrison.

The Hallmarks registered as a Sweet Adelines quartet in January of 1975, won their regional contest in May of that year and started up the ladder of success in international competition, but hardly at the bottom rung. The quartet placed in the top five in the next four international contests, ranking second in 1977 and '78. Their crowning performance came in 1979 as they competed against 46 other quartets for the championship, wearing dresses fashioned by Liz from curtains and bed sheets ordered from the Sears catalog.

During their years as competitors The Hallmarks maintained a busy performance schedule across the U.S. and Canada. In 1975 the quartet was featured in a PBS educational film, and the following year participated in a two-week concert tour of Poland.
