Placement Auditions for the Ames Children’s Choirs

Do you love to sing?  Do you miss making music with friends?  Placement Auditions for the 2022-2023 Season of the Ames Children’s Choirs will be conducted from August 14-21, 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).

Rehearsals will be conducted in-person, but an online Zoom option will be available. Rehearsals will take place on Mondays (Prep & Chorale) and Tuesdays (Concert Choir & Singers). All choirs will perform a Winter Concert in December and a Spring Concert in May in addition to performances and collaborations with central Iowa communities.

For all 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.
