K-Town Sound is incredibly proud and blessed to have Kellie Phifer as our director. Kellie has been a member of Sweet Adeline's since 1993, and has devoted her time and talents to mastering the art of Barbershop.
In addition to directing K-Town Sound, Kellie was the tenor of the winning quartet Regional Champions, Infinity, in 2017 and 2018 and is currently the tenor of a new quartet, Mint Julep.. In her spare time, Kellie is a Registered Nurse in an intensive care unit.
Kellie is a vivacious, motivational, and caring director. She gives her all, every week, to help each chorus member to develop and refine good vocal skills. A young director, Kellie was mentored and encouraged by the late Nancy Shumard, and her influence still is visible in Kellie's directing today.
