TWO ALL STATE CHOIR MEMBERS CHOSEN TO "REP" GR AT THE TEXAS MUSIC EDUCATORS ASSOCIATION CONVENTION IN SAN ANTONIO!

Last Week, senior Hannah Rice, a 2 year All State Choir Member and sophomore Crow Waters represented George Ranch High School as members of the All-State Treble Choir at the Texas Music Educators Association Convention in San Antonio.


These students were chosen for this prestigious honor through a competitive process held this year across the state at District, Region, and Area levels. Hannah Rice is a private voice student of Jennifer Frnka and Crow Waters is a private voice student of Dr. Kathleen Westfall and both sing at school under the direction of Charles Williams who is a member of the Texas Music Educators Association, a 14,000+ member organization headquartered in Austin.


High school students selected to perform in the All-State concerts have competed through auditions to qualify at the state level. All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. 1,875 students are selected through a process that began with over 70,000 students from around the state vying for this honor to perform in one of 18 ensembles. Texas Music Educators Association sponsors the Texas All-State competition. This competitive process begins throughout the state in auditions hosted by 33 TMEA Regions. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each instrument or voice part. From this ranking, a select group of musicians advances from their Region to compete against musicians from other areas in eight TMEA Area competitions. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in a TMEA All-State music group. Only the top 2.6% of musicians who initially audition become All-State musicians.


These All-State students participate in three days of rehearsals directed by nationally recognized conductors during the TMEA Clinic/Convention. Their performances for thousands of attendees bring the extraordinary TMEA event to a close!
