Lori has been a member of Gateway Chorus for 16 years. Living 152 km out of Edmonton means that for 16 years she have chosen to attend rehearsals, coaching sessions, sing outs and meetings with an extremely talented and passionate group of women. Instead, she could have enjoyed 5.46 trips around the earth, run 5190 marathons, completed 100 hikes of the Appalachian trail or visited Carnegie Hall 8 times. As Loris say, "My carbon footprint sucks but my heart is full!"
Lori also sings with Thumbs Up! Quartet who have, she says, made her a better person: "They are my laughter, my joy and my pride."
