Board of Directors

A.J. Ashley – Chair

A.J.’s love for choral music began in high school after participating in various choral groups, vocal training and musical productions. Ten years after high school and pursuing a career in retail management, A.J. joined Rainbow Chorus in 2013 to rekindle his love of choral music. A.J. is thrilled by the great growth in membership, audience and musicality of the chorus in his time on the board and looks forward to seeing continued growth in the coming years. “I can’t wait to see where the chorus will go in the next few years. It’s amazing to see a group unauditioned vocalists come together and form a great family and community that is able to put together professional grade performances for our audience. Thank-you to everyone whose efforts and support make Rainbow Chorus possible.”

Laura Kinzel – Marketing

Laura joined the chorus in fall of 2002, with a small leave to obtain her black belt in karate.   She moved to Guelph from Windsor, and that first weekend out in the city she attended a Rainbow Chorus concert and after-party, instantly feeling that the chorus was her home and family.  She is also a member of the choir’s Artistic Advisory Committee which researches potential music; she says this is her favourite pastime hobby.  Outside of choir, Laura is a chef and outdoors enthusiast.  Laura has a wide range of university education, from Public Relations and Journalism to Accounting, Sports Nutrition, and Desktop Publishing.  She’s a firm believer in “Never stop learning, because life never stops teaching.”  She’s committed to making sure everyone in the chorus is included and having fun.
