The Kentucky Baptist All-State Youth Choir and Orchestra is an auditioned group. Each summer, the choir and orchestra meet for a rehearsal retreat, followed by a tour throughout a section of the state. Outstanding conductors, accompanists and chaperones are enlisted to lead the group. Students who are selected and participate do not have to re-audition each year, as long as they remain members in “good standing” of a Kentucky Baptist church.
Successfully complete an audition and submit required form and fees.
$450, which includes meals, retreat, music, lodging, travel, concert shirt and admission to a theme park.
The retreat will once again be held at Campbellsville University’s Gosser Hall. The tour will make stops in the eastern and southeastern areas of state.
Auditions are to be recorded by ministers of music or children’s choir leaders from Kentucky Baptist churches. Auditions are due in to the Kentucky Baptist Convention Worship & Music Department office by Monday, March 9.
