Man leads choir in performance

The ASU Concert Choir is an elite ensemble made up primarily of undergraduate music majors. Members are chosen on the basis of a rigorous audition.

Part of a long tradition of outstanding choral groups at ASU, the Concert Choir has appeared at national and regional conventions of the American Choral Directors Association and the National Collegiate Choral Organization. Past directors have included Doug McEwen and Don Bailey.

The choir performs music from each of the major style periods ranging from unaccompanied to instrumentally accompanied literature and frequently combines with the Chamber Singers and Choral Union to present major works for chorus 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.
