Chorus Rehearsals Begin

The Ashland Area Chorus (AAC), under the direction of Libby Slade, announces their spring schedule including rehearsals, concerts and membership requirements.  

Beginning Monday, January 7, Ashland Area Chorus rehearsals are held on Monday evenings from 7-8:45 p.m. in Room 242 of the Center for the Arts. 

Founded by Dr. Rowland Blackley in 1998, the AAC is dedicated to a mission of learning great music and singing it beautifully. The chorus is open to all singers from Ashland and surrounding counties and includes Ashland University faculty, staff and students as well as other singers from the wider community. Though no formal audition is required for membership, AAC members must be pitch accurate (sing 'on key') and be able to learn and perform their parts successfully. Previous choral experience is helpful. 

This semester the Chorus will perform choruses from Verdi's Il Travatore, La Traviata, Nabucco and Aida with the Ashland Symphony Orchestra at their April 13 concert at Archer Auditorium.

Membership in AAC is open to all adults and AU students. Students still in high school may also participate with the permission of the ensemble's director.  A nominal membership fee of $25 for adults and $15 for high school students is requested and payable by the fourth week of rehearsals to continue participation in the ensemble for the semester. The membership fee is payable at the Ashland University Box Office via phone at 419.289.5125" target="_blank">419.289.5125 or online at by clicking on the "Buy Single Tickets" icon. AU students may register for the ensemble as a class.

For further information, contact the Chorus’ director Libby Slade at or (419) 685-5460.
