GOSHEN, Ind. – The Goshen College Community School of the Arts (CSA) is holding auditions on Aug. 22-23, 29-30 for youth who wish to sing in the organization’s two children’s choirs.

Auditions will be held Mondays, Aug. 22 and 29 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. and Tuesdays, Aug. 23 and 30 from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Goshen College Music Center. Auditions are 15 minutes in length and no special preparation is required, although singers may bring along a song of their choice for the audition if they wish.
