Sweet sounds endure in Calumet area

Hammond, IN  March 13, 2011

 

Highland resident Hilda Kikkert loves harmonizing with members in the Calumet Corner Chorus Chapter of Sweet Adelines International.

 

She is a charter member of the women's four-part barbershop harmony group from December 1968. With her collection of Pitch Pipes, the quarterly International Publication of Sweet Adelines, convention programs and other memorabilia, she qualifies as their historian, too.

 

They began with 22 members, a minimum requirement to compete in regional and international competitions. Kikkert remembers competing in the group's first regional competition in 1970 in Peoria, Ill., and winning the regional competition in 1976 in Chicago.  Read More--
