SALEM, Va.- The Roanoke College Preparatory Division Children's Choir is holding newcomer auditions for the 2005-2006 season May 9 and 11 from 3-8:30 p.m. Auditions will be held in Olin Hall on the Roanoke College campus. Children should come with a short prepared song and also be prepared to sing "My Country Tis of Thee." Please call (540) 375-2222 after March 1 to make an appointment.

Auditions are open to any child ages 8-18 with an interest in choral music and the rewards of participating in a quality artistic program. No previous training is necessary. Members of the choir pay a tuition fee.

Last March the Concert Choir of the Children's Choir was chosen through audition to participate in the National Choral Festival at Carnegie Hall, New York City. The Concert Choir was one of two choirs chosen for having the highest score from adjudication to be selected to perform a 15 minute concert on the stage at Carnegie Hall as a "Featured Choir."
