This concert is dedicated to the memory of Jean Revere Ferguson, a longtime and much beloved member of the Liberty Oak Chorus. A portion of the proceeds from this special performance will be donated in her honor to the Deborah Heart and Lung Center, Browns Mills, New Jersey.

Liberty Oak Chorus has lost a treasured member and dear friend this week. 

Jean began singing with Sweet Adelines in 1977.  Before joining Liberty Oak Chorus, she was a member of Watchung View Chorus and Millstone Valley Chorus.  Jean, who had sung in several quartets, was most recognized as singing Tenor with Impulse Quartet for the last ten years.

Jean was not only a fantastic asset to our Tenor section, but also held the position of Assistant Director and was a valued member of the Music Team. She worked tirelessly each year on her lottery ticket fund raising event, which was a great asset for our chorus and always helped out wherever she was needed. 

Liberty Oak Chorus presents our Woman of Note to Jeanine Perruso Brown.  Jeanine started singing as a child on the top step of her back porch with the neighborhood kids shining their flashlights from the bottom step as her spotlight, and she has been singing her heart out ever since!  In high school, she sang in choruses and studied voice. After high school, her friendly and outgoing personality led to her success working in the travel industry. She currently is a Customer Sales Representative/Corporate Travel Agent for a company in Princeton.  Jeanine is married to Lyb Brown and has a large extended family that she loves very much.
