Come Try Us
In March 2019, we will host Come Try Us, an opportunity for interested singers to attend a rehearsal and see what FWCC is all about. Interested singers in the 3rd grade and above are invited to this free, no obligation opportunity. Children will experience a FWCC rehearsal, full of learning, music and fun.
The Fort Wayne Children’s Choir invites youth, in grades 3 – 12, to participate in our auditions. Open to any singer interested in pursuing their love for singing and passion for choral excellence, auditions are free and with no obligation. All ensembles of the Fort Wayne Children’s Choir sing at season concerts, community festivals, 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.
The Audition: 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, and 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 audition decision process. Singers may participate in a Fort Wayne or Whitley Community audition and designate at that time where they want to participate.
Auditions are held in May and June each year. If you missed auditions this year, but have a child who would like to participate, please call the office, (260) 481-0481, and we can schedule a time for your child to audition.
