ASU Concert Choir

The ASU Concert Choir is a diverse group of people with different levels of musical experience, but who all show dedication and commitment to musical excellence. Most of the members are undergraduate music majors, chosen after a hearing at the beginning of each semester.

Concert Choir’s mission is to help each member experience the power of collaborative performance. We believe there is no better way to learn how to work as a team than to be in a choral ensemble: we grow as musicians and as people through seeking to understand and empathize with one another’s experiences and backgrounds.

The ASU Concert Choir has performed in both national and regional conventions and participates in large works presented by ASU’s choral and orchestra programs. One such work was the award-winning 2018 production of Bernstein’s Mass, a collaboration between the Music Theatre and Opera, Choral, Orchestra, Dance and Film programs, featuring the Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, and Choral Union along with ASU’s Symphony Orchestra.

We are dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment that celebrates the rich cultural diversity present at Arizona State University, and we strive to perform a broad and inclusive selection of music throughout our season.

Joining: Prospective members sing for the choral faculty the first two days of the fall semester or for the conductor second semester. Have a 2-minute solo of your choice prepared (any repertory that best shows your vocal ability). You may be asked to sight sing or do other vocalizing. Hearing and sign-up information goes out around August 1 for the fall semester. For the spring semester, contact the director.
