The All-State audition process for high school choir students leads ultimately to qualification in one of three All-State Choirs that perform at the annual TMEA Clinic/Convention: Treble Choir, Tenor-Bass Choir, and Mixed Choir.


Music for the All-State auditions will be made available for purchase during the summer months.  By early August, practice tracks will be available for students to download from the website or on CD which can be obtained from Ms. Solberg.  Students may also choose to attend one of the many All-State Choir Camps that are offered during the summer at university campuses around the state of Texas.


All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive.  This competitive process begins in September with the District Auditions. At this audition (which includes 100’s of students) individual students perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each voice part. From this ranking, a select group of musicians (usually around 40 students per voice part) advances from their District to compete against students from other Districts in the Region Auditions. These auditions are held on a Saturday and take most of the day.


The Region Auditions are identical to the District auditions except that there are fewer students and the music selected for the auditions is different. The highest-ranking voices judged at the Region Auditions (usually the top 15 on each voice part) will advance to the Pre-Area Auditions.  All students who are ranked in the top 40 in their voice part will perform in a Region Choir Concert.  These auditions are held on a Saturday and take most of the day.


Students who were selected to continue to the Pre-Area auditions will audition again, with different music than was used in the first two auditions and will also be judged on sight reading. The top 5 students on each voice part will advance to the Area auditions where they will compete against the other Areas in the state.  These auditions usually take place one evening after school and go until around 10PM.


The Area auditions also consist of selections of music as well as sight reading.  Students judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in a TMEA All-State music group. These All-State students participate in three days of rehearsals directed by nationally recognized conductors during the annual state TMEA Clinic/Convention. Their performances before thousands of attendees bring this extraordinary event to a close.


Parent volunteers will be needed as chaperones for the District, Region and Pre-Area auditions.
