Island Hills Chorus Woman of Note ~ 2018

Linda Costello

    Music is my passion! I’m proud and happy to say I have been a Sweet Adeline Island Hills Chorus member for 26 years. I have served in multiple capacities: as an Assistant Director, LEAD Section Leader, Music Tdam Member Chairperson  from 1994 to 2012. I completed 95% of the Director Certification Program, and attended all Sweet Adelines educational seminars/conferences both regional and international. My goal is two fold:

1. To grow and improve my own musical and singing skills—to become the best I can be.

2. To help my leads, chorus, director and music team grow  to the best of my ability alongside the management team.

   One person can make a difference and I believe every chorus member does! I have always been a team player, enthusiastically working with our Director and chorus, leading the vocal warm-ups,  leading or co-leading sectionals, monitoring and patiently helping “newbies“ creating demo learning tapes,  tutoring LEADS before and after  rehearsals and hosting extra rehearsals at my home. I have coached several quartets,  performed and directed many performances over the past 20 years.  I am a good listener and teacher who is always willing to give as well as receive constructive criticism given with kindness and respect. I try  to set a good example and practice what I preach, and although I am a hard worker I like to make learning fun, easier, more productive and accurate.  Two of my favorite mantras are “selling the song“ and “perfect practice makes perfect performance.”


Linda is truly a Woman of Note to all who know her!

We are so glad she is a part of our chorus!
