Lady of the Week – Leah Drury

Leah Drury

Soprano 1

How long have you been in the choir?

This is my second season

What’s your favorite PFLC song?

Can’t Hardly Wait – I’m a longtime ‘Mats fan

What’s your favorite thing about being in this choir?

Harmony – in more ways than one 🙂

What do you like to do outside of choir?

Hang with my hubby and kids (ages 10 & 15); teach Music Together to wee ones; travel; go out to eat (I’m a terrible cook); help folks buy & sell houses – seriously love my job; and disrupt the patriarchy

Who are your favorite local bands/musicians?

Lizzo, Caroline Smith, Polica, Sims, ska band The Prizefighters

What’s your go-to karaoke song?

I love singing with other people (duh) so duets are my favorite – and I’m currently obsessed with finding people to sing “I’ve Had the Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing with me.  I can also rock either part of “Forgot About Dre,” “The Girl Is Mine,” “Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart,” “Total Eclipse of the Heart” (not really a duet but it works)

Describe yourself in three words

Outside the box

Who would play you in a movie about your life?

Amy Adams

What do you want to be when you grow up?

The person who picks music snippets to play in pro sports stadiums… or, a lab-coat-wearing makeup saleslady… or, a touring backup singer 50 feet from stardom
