2019-2020 Auditions

The Fort Wayne Children’s Choir (FWCC) is holding Auditions on July 10, 2019 for the 2019-2020 season.

Youth in grades 3-12 should schedule an audition by calling the FWCC office at (260) 481-0481. 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.

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 non-intimidating. An audition takes approximately 30 minutes and usually includes 4-6 children of the same age. A parent information session is conducted at the same time. Following the session, the level of choir is determined for which the singer is ready. The child/parents/guardian is contacted with more information following the placement decision process.

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 is proud to represent eighty-seven different schools in addition to twenty-seven home school groups from nine different northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio counties.
