The Octagon

Larkin Barnard-Bahn
Junior Larkin Barnard-Bahn sings with the Sacramento Children’s Chorus and is a founder of the SCDS A Cappella Club. She has sung in almost every language you've heard - or never heard - of, including Zulu, Lithuanian, and Serbo-Croatian. When not singing, she is often binging “The Great British Baking Show” or concocting her own mini heart attacks to give to her peers. Contact at
