Auditioning Information
Students new to All-State Youth Choir must currently be in grades 9 through 12 and audition for the opportunity to be part of the choir. Auditions for 2018 are scheduled for the first two Saturdays of February (the 3rd and the 10th) at several churches across the state.

The Participation Fee includes tour lodging, tour meals, bus travel during the tour, three shirts, a packet of music shipped to each student, a tour booklet / packet, family group and whole group tour photos, and a CD recorded live the last night of the tour.
