The new Kilgore College Children's Chorus is looking for students in fifth through eighth grades.
Auditions are open through Sept. 16 and are by appointment only at the Anne Dean Turk Fine Arts Center on the Kilgore College campus.
The chorus is "an opportunity to fall in love with music through enthusiastic and artistically expressive performances of choral music," said Jim Taylor, Kilgore College director of choral activities.
Taylor said students auditioning must be able to "carry a tune" but do not need to be able to read music or have any musical experience.
Rehearsals for the chorus will be Thursdays from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. each week, beginning Aug. 29, at Longview's Trinity Episcopal Church, 906 Padon St.
Cost to participate in the chorus is $125 per semester.
Scholarships are available.
