American Youth Chorus is holding auditions for students ages 8 to 14 to join the chorus .
American Youth Chorus, the youth chorus of Congressional Chorus, has 100 young people from DC, Maryland, and Virginia. For more information about the chorus, visit AYC’s new website at congressionalchorus.org/ayc.
To schedule an audition time, please e-mail AYCManager@congressionalchorus.org or call (202) 399-7993, ext. 182. No experience is necessary and singers need not prepare a song in advance for the audition. The artistic director will run some scales and warm-ups with your child and have him or her sing something familiar such as “Happy Birthday.”
American Youth Chorus believes that all children, regardless of socio-economic background, deserve a high-quality music education. Tuition for our program is based on a sliding scale determined by household income and full scholarships are available.
In addition to concerts at the Atlas, past performances have taken place at the White House, Kennedy Center, the U.S. Capitol Building, the Children’s Inaugural Ball, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival with the Welsh National Opera, and the State Department for the Kennedy Center Honorees luncheon.
