Placement Auditions for the 2016-17 season of the Ames Children’s Choirs (ACC) will be conducted from Aug. 21-28. 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 2017. 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. Please contact Shon Stephenson at or 515-290-1422 to receive more information about the program and/or to arrange for a specific audition time.
