Lauren Inglis is a grade 12 student at Liverpool Regional High School. At a young age, Lauren discovered a love for music. She took off on a journey of studying piano, trombone and singing! Lauren realized her deep passion for trombone/piano playing and began developing extraordinary skills through The Royal Conservatory of Canada. From 2017-2019 she was the piano accompanist for Queens County Vocal Troupe, where she spent hours in the theatre preparing kids for musical theatre productions. She accompanied an entire MTI Broadway Production with this troupe, mastering the piano accompaniment of Stephen Sondheim’s “Into The Woods Jr”. She was accepted and is an active trombone player in The Nova Scotia Youth Wind Ensemble in 2017 and The Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra in 2019! Lauren is pursuing a career in Music Education at Acadia University this coming fall! She loves drawing and writing in her spare time.
Ashley-Rose Goodwin spends her days balancing the life of motherhood alongside her deep passions for music and theatre. She began performing theatrically and studying piano in the early 90s. Theatre has always been a second home to Ashley, so she decided to pursue a Theatre Studies Degree shortly after completing high school. Motherhood stepped in and took over in 2006, so Ashley dedicated her life to raising her boys, working on exams for piano through The Royal Conservatory of Canada and diving heavily into community theatre. She opened a private studio focusing on piano training and theatrical performance for youth in 2010. In 2017 she established Queens County Vocal Troupe, a musical theatre group for youth focused on building self-confidence, vocal skills and performance training. 2019 rolled around, and Ashley felt ready to return to Dalhousie and complete her Theatre Studies Program. Since returning, she has been placed on The Dean’s List and has successfully entered the Music Department, where she has trained vocally for the past year. You will find Ashley enjoying nature in her spare time, reading, playing outside with her kids or writing. Ashley is excited to share her vocal repertoire that she has studied this past year & is thrilled to share the stage once again with Lauren!
