For more than 30 years, Des Moine’s Iowa Youth Chorus (IYC) has been providing young singers with world class choral education. As summer eases into fall, it’s time to enroll for fall semester classes. Young singers are invited to an open audition on one of these six dates.
Monday, August 26 and Monday, September 9, auditions will be held at the Ankeny United Church or Christ, 602 SE Delaware Avenue, Ankeny.
Tuesday, August 27 and Tuesday, September 3, auditions will take place as the Covenant Presbyterian Church, 1025 28th Street, West Des Moines.
Wednesday, August 28 and Tuesday, September 4 auditions will be held at the Windsor Presbyterian Church, 6301 University Avenue, Windsor Heights.
All auditions are from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm. They are on a drop-in basis during this time. Prospective chorus members, ages 8-18, are asked to come prepared to sing a short piece of their own choosing, with a 10 minute time limit.
