Hi-Fi Since last spring of 2011 when they formed with the goal of creating "high quality sound", Hi-Fi has been building up a following in their home base of the Chicago metro area. All four members are veterans of the womens barbershop quartet style. Maureen and Debra have known each other since high school. They sang together for many years in "Melo-Edge" quartet which won the Sweet Adelines International Quartet Championship in 1983. The group travelled extensively, produced many recordings and made appearances on TV including the "Phil Donahue Show". Helen sang in the very first couple of Chicago Harmony Sweeps Regionals with a quartet named "The Tonight Show". More recently she and Dawn made it to the Top 10 International Quartet finals with "Jukebox" quartet. Helen and Debra are music directors of the Spring Valley (Schaumburg) and Edge O' Town (northside Chicago) choruses, respectively. All four members of Hi-Fi have won chorus international gold medals with the Northbrook-based Melodeers. They also coach other quartets and choruses and serve as clinicians for teaching others about the performance of barbershop music.
