Ashley Music School

Ashley Voices & Music Consort

V. & M. (as it is affectionately known), is an "amateur" choir in the sense that it is comprised of non-paid members, but it maintains "professionalism" in performance standards, under its founder and Director: Elizabeth Hawley.
Over the years it has welded into a community of enthusiastic members with a great team spirit!
The repertoire is very wide, ranging from mediaeval to Benjamin Britten; but it has always been most at home with music from the English madrigalian era, both secular & religious. Frequent recitals are given, in halls & churches; for example it has been occasionally invited to sing all the Sunday Services in the Cathedral at Chester.
