~ History of the Ladies ~


The idea for the act came in March of 2000; Teri Bibb, Karen Culliver and Lisa Vroman met over coffee and lemon cake to discuss the notion of doing a three-soprano act, focusing on their friendship and their shared experience of playing Christine on Broadway in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA.  Fade out – Fade in:  A little more than a year later and their debut performance at a gala event at the Library of Congress, and the following year, the release of an album.  About that time, Lisa went back to the national tour of PHANTOM and the Ladies went looking for a replacement Christine.  They found Mary D’Arcy, who played opposite the original Phantom, Michael Crawford.  She was the perfect fit. 

Over the years the Ladies have welcomed some lovely guest artists:  Luann Aronson, Laurie Gayle Stephenson and Elizabeth Ward Land.  In recent years they have had the great privilege to work with some extraordinary music directors, arrangers and orchestrators, including Karl Jurman, Mary Ekler,  Ed Martel, John Boswell, Kathy Sommer, Greg Anthony, Steve Landau, and Steven Applegate.  They have performed at intimate private parties, cabarets, supper clubs, as well as with symphony orchestras - singing to sold-out crowds in large concert halls.  

Whether it is a corporate event, a gala fundraiser, a symphony concert or part of a performing arts center’s season, the Ladies continue to bring their special blend of harmony, fun and class to every stage and occasion.
