Virtual Placement Auditions for the Ames Children’s Choirs

Do you love to sing?  Do you miss making music with friends?  Virtual Placement Auditions for the 2021-2022 Season of the Ames Children’s Choirs will be conducted from January 10-17, 2022. 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 in-person rehearsals, but offering an online Zoom option. 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 or (515) 290-1422 to receive more information about the program and/or to arrange for a specific audition time.
