About our Director.
Motor City Blend Chorus is very proud to be under the direction of Master Director, LeAnn K. Hazlett.
LeAnn first began studying voice in the 7th grade. She studied at Bowling Green State University and has been a Sweet Adeline since the age of seventeen.
LeAnn became the lead of her first competing quartet in 1983. In 1988 she formed the quartet Swing Street with three other women from the Detroit area, and just three short years later Swing Street won the International Quartet Competition and became the 1991 International Champions or “Queens of Harmony.” LeAnn’s next competing quartet was SPOTLIGHT which earned the 2nd place International Quartet medal in 2003, placed 4th in 2004, and became the 2006 International Champions.
LeAnn has led choruses to the top at Regional Competitions multiple times since becoming a director in 1994. In addition she has lead the chorus into the international arena competing at over ten International Competitions.
LeAnn resides in Swanton, Ohio and is a full-time Cosmetologist. In addition to her director duties she coaches many area quartets and choruses who recognize her talent and valuable knowledge of the Barbershop style. LeAnn enjoys sharing her love of music and educating others in the wonderful hobby of barbershop singing.
