Frequent questions about joining the AACC:
Who are we?
Singers in grades K-12 divided into four choirs based on age. The Preparatory Program does not audition.
When & where do we meet?
Tuesday evenings (time varies based on your choir). We start in mid-August and finish the first Sunday in May. We rehearse and perform at First United Methodist Church in downtown Anderson, and we have a few performances in the Anderson community throughout the year.
Is there a cost?
Yes, there is a fee, but we have MANY singers who are on full or partial scholarships. We won’t leave you out due to cost!
Is the audition hard?
No, you can sing a simple song like “Mary Had a Little Lamb” and a few other easy things just so we can hear your voice. It’s not hard at all!
TIPS for a successful audition:
RELAX! Your voice will sound stressed if you are stressed. The directors love to hear your voice!
Have good manners. Say please and thank you. You are auditioning your good character as well as your voice.
Sing with confidence. Try to use a mature tone with big vowel sounds.
RELAX! We've already told you this one, but it's that important!
