Some people might steer you to a Panasonic G7, which has a mic jack, shoots good video, and costs relatively little. A Viennese has used a Sony a7s , with good effect, for singers in low light. However, were your friend recently expelled from the convent, and a novice at teaching kids to sing, something simpler and cheaper might be more suitable.

Thanks for the recommendations John. One of my considerations was an "old stock" G6. Are there any deal breakers that were improved in the next generation?

If you can find a Lumix G6, with 14-42mm kit lens, for under $600, fine. The 1080p video results will be comparable for the situations you describe. Just be aware they won't offer an external audio mic jack.

As far as I was able to research, the G5 had no mic jack, but the G6 did indeed introduce a mic jack?
