The All-Ohio State Fair Band and All-Ohio State Fair Youth Choir feature the talents of high school instrumentalists and vocalists from many of Ohio’s 88 counties. Members are selected through an application and recommendation process. Members of the two groups arrive just days before
the Fair opens, learning all their music in a limited time. They perform daily at various times and locations, with nearly 200 total performances during the 12-day Fair. The ensembles’ distinguished and experienced staff is comprised of musicians and educators who strive to provide outstanding direction and supervision to each member. During their stay at the Ohio State Fair, members work with peers who share similar interests and develop friendships that last a lifetime. This experience is unique to Ohio as we are the only state fair in the country to present such an opportunity to our youth.
