Placement Auditions for the Ames Children’s Choirs
Tuesday, August 07, 2012
Placement Auditions for the 2012-13 season of the Ames Children’s Choirs (ACC) will be conducted from August 18-31. The program includes three choirs, Preparatory Choir, Chorale and Concert Choir, for boys and girls ages 8-18 with unchanged voices. The choirs perform an annual holiday Concert in December and spring concert in May 2013. In addition, all choirs will sing in the Midwest Children’s Choir Festival in April 2013 with composer/conductor Allen Koepke. The choirs provide numerous performances for central Iowa communities and have toured regionally, nationally and internationally.
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. Artistic Director Mr. Gene LeVasseur and Conductor Mrs. Misty Renze will direct the auditions and encourage all children with a love of music to strongly consider participation.
Please contact Shon Stephenson, Executive Assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515.290.1422 to receive more information about the program and/or to arrange for a specific audition time.
