Mississippi Baptist All-State Youth Choir and Orchestra
First Baptist is honored to host the Mississippi Baptist All-State Youth Choir and Orchestra on Wednesday night, June 14, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.
The Mississippi Baptist All-State Youth Choir and Orchestra (MBASYC&O) began in 1991 with a God-given vision in the hearts of, Graham Smith, director, and Susan Clark Luttrell, youth music/drama consultant for the Church Music Department of the Mississippi Baptist Convention Board, to musically and spiritually strengthen Mississippi Southern Baptist high school students. The choir has grown from 40 members in 1993 to 118 singers. These young people share their love for Christ throughout the state and across the country. Ninth through twelfth grade students audition and interview each fall for positions with the choir and orchestra. Those who are selected attend a three-day rehearsal camp on the campus of William Carey University, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and a six-day concert tour the following summer.
