ROGUE WORLD ENSEMBLE
“It’s artistically ambitious, undeniably eclectic, yet warmly inclusive in spirit. In a way, it’s a choir that only Ashland could have produced.”—Ashland Living, 2014
The Rogue World Ensemble is an SATB choral ensemble that specializes in performing world folk music. Drawing from the rich musical traditions of Eastern Europe, Africa, South America, the British Isles, American Roots and beyond, RWE strives to capture the unique sound and soul of each culture’s music.
Rogue World Ensemble’s dynamic performances take audiences on a journey through a wide range of cultures and a full spectrum of human experiences. Traditional instrumentation, percussion and dances help to bring out the full flavor of the songs, which range from haunting a capella chants and soulful laments to rousing gospel numbers and freedom songs.
The Rogue World Ensemble performs two seasonal showcase concerts per year in the Rogue Valley. The biennial Village Concert, designed for families with small children, has become a popular Ashland tradition. RWE may also be seen at local events and regional festivals, or booked for private events.
