Beginning Monday, August 28, the Ashland Area Chorus (AAC), under the direction of Libby Slade, invites area singers to their fall season with rehearsals held on Monday evenings from 7-8:45 p.m. in Room 242 of the Center for the Arts.
Entering its nineteenth season, 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 fall, the chorus will perform at Ashland University's fall choral concert on Sunday, October 29 with the University Choir and Women's Chorus, and at Ashland University's annual Festival of Lights service on December 10.
Membership in AAC is open to all adults. Students still in high school may also participate with the permission of the ensemble's director. A nominal membership fee of $25 is requested and payable by the fourth week of rehearsals to continue participation for the semester. The membership fee is payable at the Ashland University Box Office via phone at 419.289.5125 or online at www.ashland.edu/tickets by clicking on the "Buy Single Tickets" icon.
