Virtual Placement Auditions for the Ames Children’s Choirs

For immediate release:

Do you love to sing?  Do you miss making music with friends? Virtual Placement Auditions for the 2020-2021 season of the Ames Children’s Choirs will be conducted from August 8 – September 8.  The program includes four choirs: Preparatory Choir (ages 7-8), Chorale (ages 9-11), Concert Choir (ages 12-18, treble voices), and Singers (ages 12-18; treble/bass voices).  

We are planning a hybrid rehearsal model featuring a combination of face-to-face and synchronous, online rehearsals. These will take place on Mondays (Prep & Chorale), Tuesdays (Concert Choir & Singers), and Thursdays (all choirs). The choirs will perform a Winter Concert in December and a Spring Concert in May in addition to virtual performances and collaborations with central Iowa communities. Precautions are being made to provide a safe environment for singing during this pandemic, and we’d be happy to discuss our plans with you! 

For all virtual placement auditions, singers may sing any song of choice but are welcome to audition without a prepared song.  No previous experience or vocal training is required for participation in the choirs, only the ability to match pitch and maintain a melody.  We are also looking for singers who demonstrate the desire and commitment to participate in an excellent choral ensemble.  A tuition fee will be assessed to cover the cost of facilities, instruction, music, and administration. 

Please contact info@ameschildrenschoirs.org or (515) 290-1422 to receive more information about the program and/or to arrange for a specific audition time.
