The Ashland School District is fortunate to provide orchestra opportunities from grades 5 thru 12, under the direction of Lauren Trolley. Elementary and middle school students practice at Ashland Middle School, and AHS students are split into 2 different orchestras: Concert Orchestra and the audition-based Chamber Orchestra.
The orchestras include violin, viola, cello and bass. The schools have several instruments available for students to use on a limited basis. Quality instruments are expensive to purchase and maintain, and new instruments are always needed.
The orchestra program is currently raising funds to purchase a new string bass. Basses are generally not available to the school as a rental, and are often cost-prohibitive for families to rent.
