Students selected as Texas All-State musicians

All-State honorees (pictured from left) Zeth Lara, Ashley Garcia, Elizabeth Sauceda, and Nathan Gomez perform locally under the direction and leadership of band directors Miguel Aguiar, Noe Garcia, Dulce Rodriguez, and Christopher Haynes, respectively.

During auditions at the All-State clinic, Lara earned placement in the symphonic band, and Garcia, Sauceda, and Gomez earned placement in the concert band. Having earned the sixth chair in the All-State symphonic band makes Lara the sixth highest-ranking alto saxophonist in the state of Texas.

All-State musicians are chosen for this prestigious honor through a competitive process held throughout the academic year across the state at District, Region, and Area levels. Over 70,000 students from around the state initially enter the All-State competitive process, and only 1,780 students are selected to perform in one of 15 All-State ensembles – bands, orchestras, and choirs

Because only the top 2.5% of musicians who initially audition become All-State musicians, “All-State” is the highest and most coveted honor a Texas music student can receive!

During the TMEA Clinic/Convention, All-State student musicians participated in three days of rehearsals directed by nationally-recognized conductors. Their performances for thousands of attendees brought the extraordinary state event to a close.

The Texas Music Educators Association is an association of over 13,000 school music educators dedicated to promoting excellence in music education.
