The American Youth Chorus is holding auditions at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. At the tryouts for children age 8 to 14, artistic director David Simmons will evaluate singers’ ability to learn songs, match pitches and hold voice parts, a statement from the group says.

The 75-person choir aims to combine “choral excellence, community outreach and affordable music education,” their website says. The group is divided into a junior division for kids age 8 to 10 and a senior division for youth age 11 to 14.

The next show by the chorus will be “Musical Momentum: Changing the World, One Song at a Time,” set to open April 11.

For more information or to schedule an audition time, see the choir’s website. Singers aren’t required to prepare a song in advance.
