Sophie Lee Landau
Sophie Lee Landau became a Sweet Adeline in 2016 after moving to Houston from New York City. While her day job is working as a chemical engineer at an integrated oil-gas-chemical plant, she has remained heavily involved in the musical space.
Choir has always been a huge part of her life. Her earliest memories are of sitting in the back during her mother’s Zamir Chorale rehearsals. She sang in HaZamir, the International Jewish Teen Choir, from 7th-12th grade. She then joined Zamir Chorale throughout college at The Cooper Union in NYC, where she had the joy of singing with her mother. Upon moving to Houston, she took over as the director of the local Houston chapter of HaZamir. She was exposed to barbershop through her aunt who was a Sweet Adeline in Atlanta, GA.
Sophie Lee Landau has performed in musical theater since age 5. She has directed the Beren Academy High School theater productions since moving to Houston. She was also a dancer from ages 4 to 21 in ballet, jazz, Horton, Israeli folk dance, and ballroom, but recently stopped formal classes due to knee issues. She also plays the harp, and specifically enjoys performing duets with her mother on flute.
