Our Director

Lori Jo Whitehaus, Certified Director, SAI

Lori Jo has been a member of Sweet Adelines International since 1978, singing first with the Greater Harrisburg Chorus and then beginning her partnership with the Red Rose City Chorus in 1994.  Her commitment, talent, and enthusiasm for women’s barbershop harmony have been instrumental in ensuring that the Red Rose City Chorus is sought after as high quality entertainment in the Lancaster area and to the competition stage in our regional, five-state area.

Lori Jo is a Certified Director, Regional Faculty member, and has served on many committees and boards both at the regional and international levels of our organization.  She continues to coach choruses and quartets in Region 19 and has sung Bass with several quartets. She is also the Director of the Red Rose Chorus of the
Barbershop Harmony Society.

During the school year, Lori Jo teaches English Language Acquisition in the Harrisburg School District
to both middle school and high school students. She is a member of the Hummelstown United Church of Christ, where she serves as the Choir Director.

As if singing isn’t enough, Lori Jo became the organizational leader of
Dauphin County’s Fur & Feathers 4-H Club to be with her daughters in their hobby. While Tori recently graduated from Delaware Valley College with a degree in Animal Biotechnology, Julie is an artist whose work is known as Juli LeeAnn Photography.

Lori Jo is also a past president of the Pennsylvania State Rabbit Breeders Association, and helps coordinate the activities of the rabbit department at the Pennsylvania State Farm Show in January.  And has established her own business, Willow Creek Soaps of PA, in which she produces a wide range of soap and related products.

Tom and Lori Jo Whitehaus are the fourth generation to own their pre-Civil War log farmhouse just outside of Hummelstown.  Having been in the Whitehaus family since 1940, they have restored and renovated the property inside and out.  Tom is in the Lancaster area daily for his work at Clipper Magazine.

Red Rose City
is fortunate indeed to have this multi-talented woman to direct and educate us in the craft of barbershop harmony.
