 Since 1971 Bruce Montgomery has directed the coed ensemble, the Penn Singers, who have been performing a Gilbert and Sullivan light opera annually with the exception of 1996 when they did Spindrift, one of Monty's own. In 1977, a modernized, innovative version of Patience was enormously well-received, and helped the Penn Singers to gain respect on campus. It has been a dozen years since the last time they performed Patience at Penn.
