Placement auditions for the 2018-19 season of the Ames Children’s Choirs will be conducted from now through May 30. The program includes three choirs, Preparatory Choir, Chorale and Concert Choir for boys and girls ages 7-18 with treble voices. The choirs perform an annual Holiday Concert in December and Spring Concert in May. In addition 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.
