Island Hills Chorus Woman of Note ~ 2019

Sally Hausner



     Being of Italian descent, my enjoyment of singing came naturally to me. Over the course of 40 years, I have been blessed to sing in 3 different chapters of Sweet Adelines in my area. Music has always given me pleasure and a sense of calmness.  It came in very handy while I was raising my 4 children and running my own business. As a child, I attended the same singing school as Connie Francis. At age 16, even though I can’t read music, I wrote a song that was cited in Newsday entitled “What Have You Done to My Heart”.  
     I was the lead in many high school musicals because lead singing is my passion and who I am. While raising my children, my business skills contributed to my receiving the position of Director of Women’s Clubs for all New York State. At age 30, I had tea with Pat Nixon!  I traveled all over the country representing New York State. My family pitched in so that I could take advantage of that opportunity.  
As my children grew older, I started my own business and worked to help it grow for 25 years. It was this business experience that came in very handy, as I have been instrumental in helping the Island Hills Chorus book many paying performances and earn needed funds. I am also a local philanthropist, helping the Lustgarten Foundation. In a 10 year span of time, through my fundraising on their behalf, we have grossed $600,000.00.  I am also involved on a local town committee, helping to raise funds to clean our Lake. I have served 4 years as the president of the local homemakers, and I will soon be delivering 250 hats for homeless children.  
So, at age 80, my clock is still ticking!


Sally is a great asset to our chorus!

We are so proud to name her
