DUMFRIES, Va. – The Prince William County Children’s Choir will begin its first season this fall for children ages five to 12-years-old.

Founder and Music Director Amanda Long will hold auditions August 25 and 25, and September 8 and 9. Participants are not required to have any music training to audition, only be able to read. Audition registration will open on August 10 and the choir has space for up to 60 participants for the first year; the first rehearsal will be held September 15.

The estimated cost per child to participate in the choir is $135 each. Once registered, the money is fully refundable until the first rehearsal on Sept. 15. In addition to learning and rehearsing choral music, children will also have performing opportunities in the community later this year. Rehearsal space with a piano is still being organized and sites are needed. If you know of a space in a church or municipal building with a piano, please contact Amanda Long at 571-318-6225.

Prince William County Children’s Choir is a non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible. There are many additional opportunities for community and parent volunteers, as well as an opportunity for an intern with interests in music, children’s education, or community outreach.
