Karen Barrett

Karen BarrettKaren Barrett is the choir director of Shannon Gospel Choir for the past eight years. She has plenty of experience as a dancer in musical theatre circles and has recently choreographed ‘9 to 5 The Musical’ for Shannon Musical Society.

She believes choreography can play a significant part in choral groups. It adds another dimension to a performance giving it life, energy and personality.  The key issue is to learn what works for your group.  If movement doesn’t add to the performance, then it can take away from the song and the message you are trying to deliver.
