Asheville Youth Choir Auditions
August 22, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until August 29, 2019
Asheville Youth Choirs (AYC) are community choirs open to grades K-12. AYC includes the high school chorale (grades 9-12), the middle school chorale (grades 7-8), the concert choir (grades 3-6) and the prelude choir (grades K-2). Students from both city and county public schools, private schools, charter schools and home schools come together to form these choirs. AYC sing in area churches, civic functions, seasonal concerts, and summer tours, offering the opportunity for children and teenagers to come together to enjoy the challenge and friendship found in creating beautiful music, thereby making a positive impact in the community and beyond. The 2019-20 activities of the AYC include: concert with the Asheville Symphony Chorus and Orchestra; a magical Holiday Concert by all four choirs; a mid-winter weekend retreat and mini-tour; the National Anthem at the So-Con Basketball Championship; an Earth Day concert; performance of High Lonesome Mass with bluegrass band. The audition to be a part of all of this is a simple five-minute vocal interview in which you will be asked to sing an unaccompanied song of your choice and to demonstrate your vocal range and ability through a series of vocal exercises. The auditions will be held at the Academy for the Arts at First Baptist Church of Asheville at 5 Oak Street in downtown. The dates are either Thursday, Aug. 22, or Aug. 29, 4-6:30pm. You can sign-up for a time slot of your choice by going to www.ashevilleyouthchoirs.org and following the Audition Form links.
