The Music Department supports the Ashland Area Chorus, Women’s Chorus, Ashland University Choir, Chamber Singers and the Opera Workshop. All of our ensembles include both music majors and non-majors. In addition, the courses meet Ashland University’s Tier II Aesthetic core requirements.

Choosing a Choir

The Ashland Area Chorus or the Women's Chorus is a great choice for choral singers with less time available to commit to choir activities.

Do you have extra time, a history of good choral singing and the desire to continue singing in a select group? Audition for the Ashland University Choir! The audition is a simple one and most who attempt it are successful.

Are you really good and have the interest and time to perform with the best? Audition for the Chamber Singers.

Do you want to try your hand at a solo or ensemble part on stage? Look into the Opera Workshop.
