WHO ARE WE?

Barrington Parents of Note is a parent group formed to support the Barrington High School (RI) Music Department, both instrumental and choral. We are a not-for-profit organization. All proceeds from donations, sponsorships, and fundraising activities are used to offset music department trips, guest artists, non-budget department items, recognition plaques, and Senior awards. We assist the music teachers with event planning, hospitality, student recognition, publicity, and fundraising. We keep parents updated on activities, opportunities, important dates, deadlines, event-required attire, fundraising details and more.

Barrington Glows

These include ensemble numbers from the BHS Chorus and Choral Ensemble, a senior project featuring the editing of recordings from the BHS Band, small student-led groups, and soloists.

We hope you are able to enjoy these performances while you sip hot cocoa by the fire or trim your tree, and find them to be a small light shining through the darkness.

These performances will also be featured at the Town of Barrington Tree Lighting event December, 5th prior to the 5:00pm Tree Lighting.

United in Song, composed in 2017 by the brilliant, young, female choral composer, Mari E. Valverde.

In the score, Mari states: All of the discord over what patriotism is or is not led me to a question: “What anthem would I stand for?”

Rehearsed during the 2020 Election Cycle, and performed virtually on Veteran's Day by the Barrington HS Choral Ensemble.

Ukuthula - AVoice4Peace is a global peace awareness project where people from around the world lift their voices and join in a song of unity and togetherness.

Performed by the combined Choral Ensembles of Barrington, RI High School during the Fall of 2020, amidst the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic.
