The Kentucky Baptist All-State Youth Choir and Orchestra is an 85-voice choir and orchestra comprised of high school students (those having completed grades 9, 10, 11 or 12 as of June 1) selected by audition. Students must be active in the music ministry of a Kentucky Baptist church. Youth who remain in good standing are not required to re-audition each year.
Each summer, the choir meets for a retreat, followed by a tour throughout the state.
