While many recent high school graduates are busy with summer jobs, planning for college or pursuing career opportunities, seven young women from Rockford have been studying all summer—and loving it!

Rockford High School class of 2009 graduates Dani McDonald, Danea Mather, Michelle Morgan, Liz Downer, Rena Steed, Shannon Wilson and Cristin Jamba have been taking voice lessons and practicing throughout the school year and into the summer months with voice instructor Joyce Kash. Some of the girls will be pursuing music careers this fall at various universities; others just love to sing and want to improve their skills.

To celebrate their accomplishments, the girls joined Kash and piano accompanist Diane Crosby at Reds on the River in downtown Rockford for their Senior Recital on Wednesday, August 5. Each girl performed two songs for family, friends and Reds guests.

Keyboard World provided the piano for the recital.

Reds Executive Chef Glenn Forgie was thrilled with the talent and professionalism of each girl. “This is a real treat for our guests,” he said, “and whenever we can partner with our community and provide a venue for students to gain experience performing, we are happy

to help.”
