North Iowa Choral Society to Hold Auditions

MASON CITY – North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) is pleased to announce that auditions for membership in the North Iowa Choral Society will be held Sunday Sept. 16 in Fine Arts Room 172 (vocal music room) at NIACC.

Vocalists should come prepared with a short solo to perform. Vocalists may bring an accompanist or one will be provided. Each vocal audition is scheduled to take no longer than 15 minutes.

NIACC offers members of North Iowa Choral Society college credit and/or continuing education credit, which is a unique opportunity offered only with North Iowa Choral Society membership.

The Choral Society also hosts a Children’s Choir. Those auditions will be scheduled through area teachers of children in grades 4-8 (unchanged voices only) or you may schedule an audition directly with Choral Society President Julie Taylor.  It is a mission of North Iowa Choral Society to nurture musicianship in area youth.

“We have a unique opportunity this year in that new members who are accepted may enjoy the experience of participating in the Candlelight Christmas Concert at NIACC, which is a wonderful holiday program that is only held every other year,” said North Iowa Choral Society President Julie Taylor.

Candlelight Christmas will include the new Children’s Choir singing on stage with the River City Barbershop Chorus, the NIACC Choir, NIACC Singers and members of NIACC’s North Iowa Band and North Iowa Symphony Orchestra.

North Iowa Choral Society was founded in 1994. It is a semi-professional, audition-only SATB adult choral group and is sponsored by NIACC.  The group performs both sacred and secular music from various genres (classics, spirituals, musical theatre, jazz, swing, blues, etc.) in various venues.  The group has performed at Iowa Choral Directors Conventions, the Choral Symposium, KCMR Live Christmas Concerts, Waldorf Performing Arts Series, and as seasoned performers in NIACC’s Performing Arts Series in concert with Shirley Jones in 2002 and biennial Candlelight Christmas Concerts.

To schedule an audition or for further information about North Iowa Choral Society or the Children’s Choir, please contact Choral Society President, Julie L. Taylor, at 641-420-6472 or email (or visit us on Facebook).
