JAMESTOWN — Students from the Jamestown area have been selected to be part of the All-Ohio Youth Choir at the Ohio State Fair this summer.

A fund-raiser is being held tonight for the 13 kids to help fund the trip. The benefit and cake auction will take place at 7 p.m. at the Jamestown Opera House. Admission is $5.

The All-Ohio Youth Choir was founded in 1963. Now known as the All-Ohio State Fair Youth Choir, the group was organized to provide Ohio’s high school vocalists an opportunity to share a musical experience similar to the All-Ohio State Fair Band.

The 200 members of the Choir are selected each spring on the basis of their ability and experience, the recommendation of their high school choral director, geographical considerations and the consent and promised support of their parent or guardian.
