Nevada Journal

Placement auditions for the spring season of the Ames Children’s Choirs will be conducted Jan. 3-5, in Ames. The program will be accepting singers, ages 8-18, into all three choirs at this time. Rehearsals resume on Jan. 4 and 5. All singers will participate in the Spring Concert on Sunday, May 15, in addition to other performance opportunities. Auditions for the 2016-2017 season will be held for all three choirs in May and June.

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.

Please call Shon Stephenson at 515-290-1422 to receive more information about the program and/or to arrange for a specific audition time.
