Since the inception of ACC nearly two decades ago, the success of the choirs is attributed to the support of the singers’ families and all our patrons and contributors. We gratefully acknowledge their kind and generous contributions.


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.

The ACC program is a 501 (c) non-profit corporation. Your financial support is greatly appreciated and is tax-deductible. Contributions will help support scholarships, ACC-sponsored festivals, the purchase of choral music and performances at prestigious conferences.  For monetary contribution, please send a check to:

The Ames Children’s Choirs (ACC) is a well established and accomplished children’s choral society of auditioned members, entering its 19th program year. We are currently seeking volunteers to help with musical mentoring for our younger singers, particularly members in the Preparatory Choir and some in Chorale. The needs primarily include help in organizing sheet music, guiding singers to follow instructions and help in individual voice part practice during regular rehearsals on Mondays between 4 and 5 pm or 5 and 6 pm.

Be a part of the ACC, help your community, and gain valuable experience!
