The Ashton-Smith Singers Of Australia is an amateur choral ensemble founded and directed by David Ashton-Smith in 1980. The group averages 70 – 80 voices for most of its performances, which vary across a wide spectrum of musical genres. For a period of 30 years, they have delighted audiences with their energetic singing and warm vocal colour. The group’s members range in age from early ’20s through to the more mature. Each new member, having passed an audition process, moves quickly into the busy rehearsal schedule and then into a performance opportunity.
