FALL CONCERTS BEGIN WITH AU MARCHING BAND AND IRON TOYS

The Department of Music at Ashland University begins its fall semester concerts at the Ashland County Fair with the University Marching Band leading the Parade of Bands at the grandstand on Sunday, September 15 at 2:00 p.m. under the baton of Leonard Salvo, Director of Bands.

Also in September, the Department of Music is pleased to present a guest artist recital with the Iron Toys saxophone and woodwind quartet on Monday, September 23, 7:30 p.m. in the Elizabeth Pastor Recital Hall.  Founded in 2004 by Tom Reed, Rich Shanklin, George Shernit and Howie Smith, the quartet performs a diverse repertoire blending classical, jazz and avant-garde styles. Because of the doubling skills of its members, the group has over twenty instruments available for any given performance. This concert is free and open to the public.
