There is something that resonates about all vocal music. It’s the sound of life and kinda what the doctor ordered. Why? Because people need to, and have always needed to sing together. It’s part of being human, and it shows us that we can actually work together in greater numbers, in harmony. Novel idea.BEN FOLDS

Truly a jack-of-all-trades in the Toronto music and theatre scene, Scott is renowned for his positivity, enthusiastic leadership, critical ear and zest for all things musical – all traits that make him a sought-after Musical Director. Having sung in choirs his whole life and studied singing from the age of five, it’s no wonder he’s ended up with a passion for contemporary choral music. Nothing makes him happier than getting people singing!

Scott spent six years as Artistic Director of newchoir, Toronto’s first rock choir, creating original rock and pop choral arrangements and performing with the likes of Steven Page, Andy Maize, Sarah Slean, Cadence and Jeremy Fisher. He resumed the position in 2020 and continues to serve as their Artistic Director concurrently with SoundCrowd. He was also co-Music Leader for the East End United Church Choir on the Danforth from 2014-2022. Aside from happily waving his arms in front of large groups of singers, Scott has been seen in and around the GTA as an actor, singer, piano player, musical director, arranger, songwriter and vocal coach.

Musical Director theatre credits include Beauty and the Beast and Fiddler on the Roof (Capitol Theatre, Port Hope) Anne and Gilbert (RuBarb Productions, Moose Jaw), The Rocky Horror Show (Fallen Rock Productions, Randolph Theatre), and The Secret Garden (Bryant Productions, Factory Theatre). Scott has appeared as a performer in the Canadian premiere of The Hobbit (Grand Theatre, London), A Christmas Carol: The Musical (Rose Theatre, Brampton), The Last Five Years (Big Benn Productions, Broadway World Award nominee), and most recently as Marcus in Murder for Two (Festival Antigonish/Neptune Theatre/1000 Islands Playhouse) and Man 1 in Songs for a New World (Rosebud Theatre). In 2019 he was part of the Virtual Community in Dear Evan Hansen at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, and had the honour of singing backup for both Josh Groban and Sarah Brightman. He was a featured soloist in The World Beloved at Carnegie Hall in NYC in 2013 with the Eastminster Choir, returning to Carnegie with newchoir in 2015 and SoundCrowd in 2017 to perform in the sold out Total Vocal concerts, led by the godfather of modern a cappella, Deke Sharon (The Sing-Off, Pitch Perfect).

Scott hopes that his passion for the power of music will be shared through SoundCrowd by singers and audiences alike for many years to come.

After spending SoundCrowd’s first two seasons as Dance Captain and Performance Team member, Ashley stepped into the role of resident Choreographer in 2018 and has loved every minute!

Since her very first dance recital at the tender age of four, Ashley has dedicated her time to perfecting her craft of creating resonant theatre. It was through these experiences that Ashley soon realized that versatility meant longevity. Her unique approach to her craft is a jumbled result of having trained under many of the Canada’s most acclaimed theatre, dance and vocal teachers, and through her experiences working with respected Canadian theatre artists. Fusing creativity, compassion and a strong work ethic in all her artistic endeavours and a consistency in motivating others toward success with a collaborative yet decisive style are what have set this entrepreneur ahead of the races.

An honours graduate of both the Etobicoke School of the Arts & the Randolph College for the Performing Arts, Ashley is an agency-represented performer and voice actor with credits across Canada.

When she is not furthering her training or performing herself, Ashley can be found working as a Theatre Director, Choreographer & Audition Coach. She is a resident Director/Choreographer for the Bravo Academy for the Performing Arts advanced musical theatre program, is a Teaching Artist for Arts Express within the TDSB, TCDSB & Private School Boards and recently spent three summers on Faculty of the Musical Theatre dept. at the National Music Camp of Canada.

In summer 2018, Ashley directed the premiere of ‘Rhymes with Wow’ at the Toronto Fringe Festival, garnering them a NNNNN review from Now Magazine.
