The Fort Wayne Children’s Choir (FWCC) invites youth in grades 3-12 to participate in our open auditions for the 2018-19 season. 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.
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. 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 audition decision process. Singers may participate in a Fort Wayne or Whitley Community audition and designate at that time where they want to participate.
