MNHHS Students Wrapped Up Tour with Kentucky Baptist Convention

choir-2The Kentucky Baptist Convention All-State Youth Choir.

HANSON, Ky. (7/1/14) — The Kentucky Baptist Convention All-State Youth Choir performed at the Ballard Veterans Center Saturday, June 28.

The Kentucky Baptist All-State Youth Choir and Orchestra is an 85-voice choir and orchestra made of high school students selected by auditions. Students must be active in music ministry of a Kentucky Baptist church and those, who remain in good standings are not required to re-audition.

Three MNHHS students  had the opportunity this summer to tour with the choir.   

“I’ve been doing this for five years,” said Ragan Glover. “They came to my church one day and asked us to rehearse some songs, then we auditioned. It’s been going great, I love it.”

Each summer, the choir meets for rehearsal, followed by a tour throughout the state.

“It’s only eight days,” said Kasey Miracle. “We go and rehearse from Sunday to Wednesday. Then we take off on that same Wednesday and start our tour across Ky., where we visit different churches  to perform. It’s amazing, we get to use our voices for the good of honoring our God.”

The students agreed, that they wished more churches from the community would get involved.

“It’s one of those things, that when you do it, you want to bring more people to join,” said Matthew Howerton. “There are only three of us from Madisonville,  which should be a lot more… it’s a lot of fun, especially after you do it. I have been doing this for seven years and I look forward to it more each year.”

The choir also had the opportunity to sing for Lifeway Christian Resources in Nashville, Tenn.

“Lifeway is one of the biggest publishing companies,” said KBC Worship Consultant Jason Stewart. “It’s where we buy a lot of our literature from and it’s been a great experience for the students to visit and perform.”

The choir ended the tour Sunday, June 29 in Hopkinsville.

“I’ve been doing this for nine years,” said Stewart. “I get the joy of working with these talented students every year.”
