Laura Ross

I grew up in the Clark County area and attended Battle Ground High School, where I first met and sang under the founder of our group, Mr. Orell Peru.  I have been signing with Touch of Class since 1990, following in the footsteps of my mother, who was also a student of Mr. Peru, and was one of the earliest members of the group back in the 1970s.  Today I am joined by both of my daughters, making choral music truly a family affair. My 2-year old granddaughter frequents rehearsals as well, promising to carry the tradition into the next generation.

By day, I am a financial controller for a local company. In my free time, aside from singing, I enjoy reading, sewing and traveling; my husband and I have taken numerous trips to Europe, Hawaii, and the Caribbean.

I previously served two terms as president, and I'm pleased to once again be taking the leadership baton. I look forward to working with new director Allison King, and continuing to help develop the chorale into not only a community resource and a place to make friends, but an amazing musical experience for audience and singers alike.
