Ash Schofield accepted the role of Music Director of Vocal Evolution at the start of 2019 after being involved in the chorus for over 15 years. Since 2003 he has been a consistent contributor to the chorus, not only as a singer but also as a leader, most recently as part of the Music Team as a Section Leader, Visual and Presentation Coordinator, VP Music and Assistant Music Director. He has consistently developed his skills in the barbershop art-form and became an Australasian Guild of Barbershop Judging Performance Category Judge in 2015 and is also serving his third year as part of the BHA National Education Faculty.
Ash is a highly experienced quartet performer who won his first BHA National quartet gold medal with TLA in 2013 and then went on to win two more gold medals with Lockout in 2015 and 2017. His current quartet, The Electric Barbercats, won the national silver medal in 2018. He has represented Australia in international competition five times since 2011, twice with chorus and three times with quartet. Outside of barbershop Ash has also been involved in musical theatre with highlights including roles in local Perth productions of We Will Rock You and Jesus Christ Superstar.
Vocal Evolution feel privileged to have Ash lead the group into its next exciting chapter.
