Barrett Choir

The Barrett Choir is a group of 100–120 singers drawn from all over the university. Most members are students in Barrett, The Honors College, but motivated and dedicated students are encouraged to join even if they are not in Barrett. While a few are music majors in such areas as music education and music therapy, the vast majority are non–music majors. Many have considerable previous choral experience, and many have sung in all–state and other honor choirs.

The Choral Program in the ASU School of Music offers ensembles for singers at a variety of skill levels and welcomes all ASU students, faculty, staff and community members into its various choirs. You do not have to be a music major to sing in an ASU choral ensemble. Learn more about our Choral Program.
