Our Team

Linda Collins

Linda Collins

Chairman

Linda has been Chairman for just two years and this year JAC celebrated its 14th birthday. She joined over 12 years ago when it had just a handful of singers and has been delighted to see the chorus numbers steadily grow to its present 28.

She loves singing which has been her main hobby for many years, mostly in musical theatre, so she came to the a cappella style of singing quite late. She accepts it is a challenge to commit all the words and music to memory but one which enables JAC better to communicate with the audience.

She is proud to be a member of JAC and wants to see it get even better and to reach an even larger audience in the coming years.
