My Tripod One-Minute Page
Sandi Wright gets great reviews wherever she teaches. She has taken her "road show" from Coast to Coast as well as to Canada, The Netherlands, Germany and Sweden!
She lives in the center of America (Saint Louis) near an international airport where air fares are affordable and travel is convenient to your schedule.
Contemporary, honest and earthy, Sandi has shared her 31-year love of barbershop harmony with members of Sweet Adelines International, SPEBSQSA, BinG! and Harmony Inc.
She has a rare gift and ability to talk to the oldest member and the youngest member -- the brand new member, as well as the most seasoned member. Her presentations are interesting, different and full of audio-visuals, audience participation and (yes, even) singing!
And no matter how hard the schedule or how long the day, she is never "too good" to sing tags with the general membership until 3 a.m.!
