We encourage all singers to prioritize singing in your school's children's choir where available, to support your local music program. However, if your school does not not offer a youth or children's choir, we hope you'll join us.
Performances: In prior years, the choir has performed on stage at the Country Music Hall of Fame, at the Nashville Science Museum, a concert-in-the part, and at the Governor's Square Mall in Clarksville. The 2016-2017 season ended with a performance on stage at the Mabry Concert hall in a performance with the APSU joint choirs.
Auditions: For this semester, no audition is required; although, as the group grows in number and in quality, auditions will be required for new and incoming participants. For now, if your children meet the age requirements, are interested in singing in a top-level choir, and can sing in-tune with a pleasing voice, we hope you will encourage them to join. Lastly, all participants will be expected to adhere to the participation agreement and code of conduct described below.
Rehearsals: Rehearsals are on Mondays from 4:30 to 6:00, (January 22 though April 16). The cost is $35.00 for the first child, and $25.00 for each additional sibling. Classes meet in Rm. 147 of the Music/Mass Communications Building on the Campus of Austin Peay State University.
