26 KELLER ISD MUSICIANS EARN ALL-STATE BAND AND CHOIR HONORS

26 KELLER ISD MUSICIANS EARN ALL-STATE BAND AND CHOIR HONORS

On January 11, musicians from Keller ISD auditioned for the opportunity to be named “Texas All-State Musicians.” Students who earned All-State honors will perform in San Antonio, Saturday, February 15, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, as part of the 2020 Texas Music Educators Association Clinic/Convention.

High school students selected to perform in the All-State organizations have successfully competed through several rounds of auditions, beginning in the fall of 2019. Over 1,600 students are selected through a process that begins with over 60,000 students from around the state vying for this honor to perform in one of 15 bands, orchestras, and choirs. Only the top three percent of musicians who initially audition become All-State musicians. Being named an All-State Musician is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive.

These All-State students will participate in three days of rehearsals, directed by nationally-recognized conductors during the TMEA Clinic/Convention. For the All-State concert schedule and conductor information, go to www.tmea.org/convention.
