    Shore Notes Chorus welcomes new director

    The Hilton Head Shore Notes Chorus is proud to introduce its new director, Melody Templeton.  Educated at Ohio State University, Otterbein University and Juilliard, her vast experience will bring new direction to this chorus. Although her education began with classical music, affording her the honor of singing at Carnegie Hall with Princeton ProMusica, she later turned her attention to the theater and performed in various musicals.  For five years she was a regular with an improvisational dinner theater troupe where she sang, danced and honed her performance skills. 

    When Melody was invited to a guest night at Scioto Valley Chorus in 1998, she discovered barbershop music and fell in love.  She joined the chorus and served as Lead Section Leader and member of the front row.  She helped the chorus win a Fourth-Place medal in Sweet Adelines International’s competition in 2011.  She has also earned medals as a quartet singer.

    Melody has a diverse musical background as soloist, quartet member, chorus member and choir singer.  She looks forward to sharing her experience and embarking on this new journey as Director of the Shore Notes.
