Frisco ISD Students are All-State Gold

Jan 17, 2020

Frisco ISD fine arts students have been invited to perform in one of the 15 Texas All-State bands, orchestras and choirs. This is a tremendous honor for these students who are members of arguably the most prestigious All-State ensembles in the country.

The Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) sponsors the Texas All-State audition process to promote students' dedication to their musical knowledge and skill.

Each fall, over 70,000 students across the state audition in their TMEA Region. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each instrument or voice part. 

A select group of musicians then advance to compete against musicians from other Regions in their TMEA Area. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in one of the All-State bands, orchestras and choirs. 

The students selected for All-State will rehearse for three days, directed by nationally recognized conductors, and perform on the closing day of the annual TMEA Convention in San Antonio.

“Excellence does not just happen,” said Pete Hazzard, managing director of fine arts. “Our students are taught by the finest educators in the state.”

Congratulations to these high school students that have advanced to All-State:
