Senior Will Goree was selected as Texas All-State Musician again.
He was selected to Texas All State Orchestra this past Saturday, January 12. According to the district web site, this year, more than 60,000 students began the rigorous audition process to become a Texas All‐State Musician.
Students compete at round 1 in district auditions. Round 2 continues with Region auditions followed by round 3 at Area Auditions. The top placements at Area are then selected to State. Selection to one of the Texas All‐State music groups is one of the highest honors and achievements for a student musician and often results in numerous scholarship awards.
Students selected will attend the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Convention at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in February. They will spend 3 days rehearsing and performing with some of the most prestigious conductors and clinicians in the nation. The TMEA clinic and convention draws more than 25,000 participants annually, and is one of the largest gatherings of music educators in the world.
