Jen steers singers in new direction

Leading lady: Jen Monk directs the South Gippsland Singers at a recent rehearsal.

THE South Gippsland Singers are singing loud and proud and going strong under new musical director Jen Monk.
After celebrating their 30 year anniversary last year and having long time musical director Larry Hills leave the group, Jen stepped up to the position and has being doing a stellar job.
“We’re getting into all types of music now,” group president Joan Harris said.
“Jen is taking us in a new direction and is making the group more appealing to younger singers.”
Jen is also the Leongatha Primary School music teacher and teaches singing privately.
She has a history as a professional singer with the Australian Navy Band and once sang the national anthem at the MCG for the AFL.
“I’m trying to get some more young people involved in the group,” Jen said.
“We’re branching out and doing some different songs to what we’ve been doing over the past few years.”
The group is going strong, with about 25 members, but could always use more.
If you wish to come along and have a sing with the group or maybe just a listen to see what it’s all about, get down to the Dakers Centre in Leongatha on Wednesdays from 7.30pm. All you need is a love for singing.
Those interested in joining can also call Lyn on 5662 3376 or Joan on 5674 3401.
