We Will Notify You When the 2018 Application is Available
Click on each question below to learn more about The All-Ohio State Fair Youth Choir and how to apply. We encourage you to read every section in its entirety before proceeding with the online application.
Five days before the opening of the Ohio State Fair, the auditioned, 200-voice Choir meets at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus and launches into a rigorous schedule that includes vocal training; sessions on vocal health; part, sectional and full rehearsals; solo auditions; and marching instruction. Once the Fair opens, the Youth Choir sings six to eight concerts a day, marching up to eight miles each day to various performance sites around the 360-acre fairgrounds. In addition to performing, AOSFYC members enjoy activities, headliner concerts and other special events at the Fair, build lifelong friendships in the Choir, and develop leadership skills that many choose to take back to the choirs in their own communities.
