Ames Children’s Choirs to hold placement auditions

— Submitted photo Members of the Ames Children’s Choirs performed in a virtual winter concert in December. The organization will soon hold virtual placement auditions for interested singers across Central Iowa.

Virtual Placement Auditions for the 2021 spring season of the Ames Children’s Choirs will be conducted from Jan. 18 – February 1. The program includes four choirs: Preparatory Choir (ages 7-8), Chorale (ages 9-11), Concert Choir (ages 12-18, treble voices), and Singers (ages 12-18; treble/bass voices).

A hybrid rehearsal model featuring a combination of face-to-face and synchronous, online rehearsals are planned. These will take place on Mondays (Prep & Chorale) and Tuesdays (Concert Choir & Singers). The choirs will perform a Spring Concert in May in addition to virtual performances and collaborations with central Iowa communities. Precautions are being made to provide a safe environment for singing during this pandemic, and we’d be happy to discuss our plans with you!

For all virtual placement auditions, singers may sing any song of choice 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. We are also looking for singers who demonstrate the desire and commitment to participate in an excellent choral ensemble. A tuition fee will be assessed to cover the cost of facilities, instruction, music, and administration.

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