Chamber Singers

The ASU Chamber Singers are an elite ensemble made up primarily of graduate students in voice. Members of this highly selective group are chosen on the basis of a rigorous audition.

The Chamber Singers performed at the Western Division Convention of the American Choral Directors Association in 2008, the first such appearance by an ASU choir in 15 years. The group presents highly polished performances of music from all periods, both accompanied and unaccompanied, and joins with other ensembles to present major works for choir and orchestra.

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.
