There are still a few spots open for Ann Arbor Youth Chorale’s 31st season! Auditions will be held Saturday morning, September 16, at Tappan Middle School, 2251 E Stadium Blvd, Ann Arbor. The choirs are for boys and girls, ages 9-16, who enjoy exceptional choral singing. Need-based scholarships are available.

To sign up for a 15-minute appointment, and for more information, simply go to the “Auditions” drop down menu on this website.

Our 31st season promises to be especially exciting, with Concert Choir’s Chicago Tour, performing with the Ann Arbor Symphony at Hill Auditorium, singing the National Anthem at several U of M sporting events, and more. And, of course, our always unforgettable Winter and Spring Concerts! 

Here’s what our enthusiastic members have written:

“AAYC is fun! Every kid who likes singing should sign up for it!”

“It feels like a whole big family that loves to sing!”

An AAYC parent recently wrote, “As for AAYC, fantastic is an understatement! Our family loved our first season of uplifting music. The dedication of such a professional, talented group of adults, eager to see our young singers grow and thrive, is heartwarming.”

Your young singers will love AAYC too! They have the chance to audition this Saturday, June 10 at the NEW Center. See below for more information, sign up on this website, and we’ll see you Saturday!

Congratulations to all the members of our Descant and Concert Choirs! Their performance on May 6 was one of the most memorable ever, with gorgeous singing and very moving performances (members of the audience won’t soon forget “But a Flint Holds Fire” by Andrea Ramsey). Here are just a few pics from our 30th Annual Spring Concert.
