Placement Auditions for the Ames Children’s Choirs

For immediate release:

Placement Auditions for the 2017-18 season of the Ames Children’s Choirs (ACC) will be conducted from August 20-30. The program includes three choirs, Preparatory Choir, Chorale, and Concert Choir for boys and girls ages 7-18 with unchanged voices. The choirs perform an annual Holiday Concert in December and a Spring Concert in May 2018. In addition, the choirs participate in festivals, provide numerous performances for central Iowa communities, and have toured regionally, nationally, and internationally.

For the placement audition, singers may 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. Conductors Dr. Christina Svec and Mrs. Mindy Phomvisay will direct the auditions and encourage all children with a love of music to strongly consider participation.

Please contact or (515) 290-1422 to receive more information about the program and/or to arrange for a specific audition time.
