What is ASJHC?
The Kentucky Baptist All-State Junior High Choir is a 90+ voice choir for students in grades 7, 8, and 9. The goal of this choir is to keep musically talented youth involved and challenged in church music by addressing the social, spiritual, and musical needs unique to this age group. Each year the choir meets on the second weekend of November and the location is rotated to a different part of the state. This year the choir will rehearse at Campbellsville Baptist Church in Campbellsville. Members are selected by recorded audition. Once selected, members will not have to re-audition to participate in the choir for subsequent years, as long as the member is eligible by grade and participation.
Who can join?
Students in grades 7, 8 and 9 may audition. Each student should be active in a Kentucky Baptist Church. If this church has a youth choir, the student should be active in the choir.
Ministers of Music or church song leaders complete the individual registration with the $10 audition fee per individual. Audition forms and instructions will be sent after your church has been registered, via their confirmation email. Complete audition forms and audition CD/DVD, and submit to the Worship and Music Department. Directors must submit a recorded audition of each student. Auditions of all students from the same church may be recorded on one CD/DVD.
What’s the cost?
Audition fee is $10.00 per individual. Cost for the weekend (includes meals, hotel housing, choir shirt, music) is $175.00 per student.
All youth auditioning will be notified with the results of their audition by Friday, September 19. All music must be learned prior to the rehearsal retreat. Music must be memorized for concerts. A rehearsal CD and music packet will be mailed to each student selected.
