The ACC program contributes to the cultural life of communities in Central Iowa, the Upper Midwest, throughout the U.S. and at international choral festivals in Canada and the Czech Republic. Locally, choirs have collaborated with area arts organizations including the Des Moines Symphony, the Central Iowa Symphony, the Ames Chamber Artists, ISU Music Department, and the Ames Children’s Theatre. The Concert Choir has been selected to perform at prestigious national and international conferences and festivals. The ACC program sponsors two highly acclaimed children’s choirs festivals in Ames (the Midwest Children’s Choir Festival and the Celebrate Singing Choral Festival) in order to provide the opportunity for young singers in the Central Iowa to hear and perform with internationally acclaimed choirs, performers and composers.
