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.
