The Austin Children’s Choir is committed to providing Austin-area children the opportunity to participate in and benefit from the joys of music. Auditions are held at the beginning of each semester and are employed to determine the child’s vocal ability and range, NOT eliminate a child from the program. Depending on the number of auditions, students will be divided into one of two ensembles.
