The Sounds of Music

The Sounds of Music

Lead: Gloria Laquaglia. Tenor: Jean Pyles Barford. Baritone: Edie Walters Moorehead. Bass: Judy St. John.

The Sounds of Music won their gold medals at the same competition that their chorus, Gem City, won the chorus championship. Jean Barford is another of the six Sweet Adelines to win gold medals as both a chorus director and quartet member. Judy served on Sweet Adelines' international board of directors for 20 years.

The quartet organized in 1969 and had already earned the admiration of audiences from Hawaii to Washington, D.C., when they won the contest in 1974. The quartet actively entertained audiences across the nation for 17 years, until their retirement in 1986.
