The Fort Wayne Children’s Choir plans auditions May 22-25 for the 2017-18 season. Youth in grades 3-12 may audition.

Auditions are free and open to any singer interested in pursuing their love for singing and passion for choral excellence. All ensembles of the FWCC sing at season concerts, community festivals, and civic events, and collaborate with many other arts organizations, such as the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, Fort Wayne Ballet, Heartland Sings, and others.

Auditions will be held at the IPFW Rhinehart Music Center, from 4:30-6 p.m. Each session is 30 minutes. To register, or for more information, call the FWCC office, (260) 481-0481, or email fwcchoir@fwcchoir.org.

Students will be placed in the choir that best suits their needs. FWCC offers participation assistance for qualifying families.

Potential FWCC members are tested on pitch matching, rhythmic skills and music theory. The audition session is meant to be relaxed, fun and nonintimidating. An audition usually includes four to six children of the same age. A parent information session is conducted at the same time. The appropriate choir level for each singer is determined after the audition session.

The mission of the Fort Wayne Children’s Choir is to provide a choral program exemplifying artistic and educational excellence for children from diverse backgrounds. The FWCC’s nearly 300 professionally trained young voices represent 88 schools in addition to 29 home school groups from eight northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio counties.
