Dawn Seigneur became the Director of Pride of Toledo Chorus in August of 2021. She was a charter member of Pride of Toledo, competing many times internationally with Pride of Toledo, three times placing in the top 10 Internationally. She has been a proud Sweet Adeline since 1985.
Dawn has sung Tenor in four registered quartets over the years, two of which have qualified to compete at the International Quartet Competition, twice with In Voice Quartet (Region 2) and twice with Surefire Quartet (Region 17).
At the Regional level, Dawn has served as Young Women in Harmony Coordinator, Choreography Coordinator, and Director of Encore Club. She has developed and implemented front row tryouts for choruses.
Dawn has served as the Director of River Raisin Chorus in Monroe, Michigan since 2000, and continues as their Director.
Dawn worked as a Physical Therapist for 41 years, and at the close of 2021 decided it was time to retire from that career. She continues to teach Yoga and Tai Chi in Delta, at her business, Sukha Yoga, and directs the choruses. She enjoys coaching quartets and choruses, choreographing, and developing fun chorus physical warmups.
In her spare time, Dawn loves to do hard labor in the yard, including vegetable and flower gardens, landscaping and composting. She likes labor-intensive, old-time activities such as making apple butter and drying sweet corn. She enjoys cooking, to her surprise, now that she has the time.
She continues to enjoy her rescue cats, currently Scout, Greta, Pip and Zoey. Family size is always subject to change without notice ☺
Dawn is thrilled to be working with Pride of Toledo Chorus as they move forward on their musical journey. Come and sing with us – it is as fun as it looks!
