Vickie Wonders Foltz (1953 – 2008)
A talented performer as well as a gifted coach and teacher, Vickie Wonders Foltz was a member of the Sweet Adeline International Faculty and the Artistic Director for Metro Nashville Chorus. The impact of her approach to barbershop showmanship can be seen and heard in choruses across the United States and as far away as Sweden and New Zealand. A teacher by profession and avocation, Vickie loved to work with young voices and help them bring their talents to new audiences.
After her unexpected passing in 2008, friends and family from around the world who had been touched by Vickie, donated in her memory. Metro Nashville Chorus created the Vickie Wonders Foltz Memorial Fund to support young women who pursue music education and performance.
If you know a young woman (Tennessee resident) who plans to pursue music in college, please let her know about the $500 Vickie Wonders Foltz Memorial Scholarship.
