The talented Mr. Friedemann

CLAREMORE —  Rogers County has talent —  and plenty of it. Claremore resident Frank Friedemann, an award-winning quartet singer, is also a founder and director of the Talk of Tulsa Show Chorus, which recently won the distinction of being Region 25 champions.  The victory affords the Chorus the opportunity to Compete on the International stage in 2013, in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Friedemann has brought this small chorus recognition within the Sweet Adeline’s organization as a cutting-edge group of talented ladies, worthy of “something to talk about”.  
The chorus is currently regarded a “Cinderella” story for the enthusiastic way these women have embraced growing in the a cappella art form, partnering with youth in the community, and their innovative recruiting methods. 
Talk of Tulsa has many gifted members engaging in many worthy chorus endeavors, but it uniquely boasts of the earnestness of its director, Frank Friedemann of Claremore.
  By day, Friedemann has served the last nine years as family service director at Musgrove-Marriott-Smith Funeral Service, caring for families experiencing loss.  He also has organized Christmas Remembrance events, where his chorus has traveled to bring carols and special music to share with families during the holidays.  He is currently the Chairman of the annual Veterans Day Parade. 
As the award-winning Talk of Tulsa prepares for its upcoming International Competition, the group is available for performance opportunities and tax-deductible donations.
