Published on Jan. 19, 2023

ASHLAND, Ohio – The 2023 season for the Ashland Area Chorus (AAC), a community-based mixed choir, has begun but is still accepting new members.

Weekly rehearsals are held on Monday nights from 7-8:30 p.m., inside room 242 of the Ashland University Center for the Arts.

“The AAC will perform a program of beautiful music (at) an AU choral concert this spring,” said Ron Blackley, director of choral activities at AU.

The AAC is open to the entire Ashland community and beyond. Singers have come from Richland, Medina, Wayne, Holmes and Crawford counties as well. Previous choral experience is helpful and encouraged. While there are no strict age limits, singers under 18 must be approved by the director.

The AAC has performed at regular AU concerts, with the Ashland Symphony Orchestra (ASO), and for the Ohio Choral Directors Association. Recent appearances have included subscription concerts with the ASO and the summer pops concert in the park.

Current members should encourage their talented friends and neighbors to attend rehearsals and make a vocal contribution to this fine musical organization. For further information, please contact Ron Blackley, at or 419-289-5114.
