Carnegie Children’s Choir auditions slated for Sept. 10

All children interested in joining the Carnegie Children’s Choir for the 2013-2014 season are invited to audition from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Sept. 10.

The choir invites any child age 9-14 who enjoys singing to audition for the choir.

Auditions will be on a first-come, first-served basis in the Hamilton Auditorium at Carnegie Hall. Each child will be asked to sing one verse of “America the Beautiful.”

For the 2013-2014 year, a $30 tuition fee will be required of each student; however, scholarships are available for anyone who needs assistance.

Being a member of the choir is a wonderful chance for children from different counties, schools and grade levels to work together to produce beautiful music. The mission of the choir is to provide an opportunity for children to sing in a community choir, to learn quality choral literature, to further develop their musical skills and to learn proper performance and rehearsal etiquette.

Susan Adkins is the director; Leah Trent is the accompanist and administrator.

Carnegie Hall’s Children’s Choir is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.

For more information about the choir auditions, call Leah Trent, education director at Carnegie Hall, at 304-645-7917.
