Auditions for Ames childrens choirs set

AMES – Placement Auditions for the Spring Season of the Ames Children’s Choirs will be conducted Jan. 4 to 7 in Ames.

The program will be accepting singers ages 8 to 18 into all three choirs at this time. Rehearsals resume on Jan. 6. All singers will participate in the Meet the Composer Festival on April 5, 2014, and the Spring Concert on May 11, 2014 in addition to other performance opportunities.

Auditions for the 2014-2015 Season will be held for all three choirs in May and June.

For the placement audition, singers are encouraged to sing a folk or patriotic song 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 and the desire and commitment to participate in a choral ensemble of excellence. A tuition fee will be assessed to cover the cost of facilities, instruction, music, and administration.

Call Shon Stephenson at (515) 290-1422 to receive more information about the program or to arrange for a specific audition time.
