About our director, Liana Jennings

 

Liana has been a Sweet Adeline since 1999.  Singing baritone since her very first night when she wandered into a chorus rehearsal in Oshawa, she has finally found where she belongs. She performed with the London Chorus until 2006, competing with them internationally in Indianapolis, Indiana in 2004.  Liana was on their Board of Directors for 4 years, holding the office of President for 2 of them.  She founded and helped manage the London Young Women in Harmony Chorus for 6 years after her daughter voiced a desire to learn barbershop as well.  Liana sang with Grand Harmony chorus in Waterloo for 1 year before joining the Festival Sounds Chorus in Stratford in 2009.  In 2011 when Festival Sounds had an opening for director, Liana expressed interest in the job and enthusiastically filled the position, enrolling in the Director Certification Program.   In March 2013 Liana achieved Certified Director status and at Region 2 Competition in April 2013 was the recipient of the Novice Director Award.

Liana lives in London with her husband Paul, 3 children Rebecca, Andrew and Ben, and their Bernese Mountain Dog, Abby .  (Being avid NCIS fans, they just had to name their dog after one of their favourite characters!) They are a homeschooling family, and have homeschooled all 3 children right through high school, with Ben currently in grade 11. Andrew is done high school and taking a year to work full-time  and Rebecca is a graduate from Sheridan College having studied Technical Productions for Theatre and Live Events. All three siblings enjoy theatre and performing live, and are often involved with small community theatre projects in London. Ben is  also a Tuba player with the Air Cadets Marching Band, while Andrew is a bagpiper, so Paul has insulated the basement to keep the neighbours from asking them to move, so now Liana practicing baritone isn't the most odd sound in the house anymore!

When not singing or planning performances, Liana works full-time at Costco in London as a Supervisor in the Membership Department.
