After completing successful auditions at the Texas Music Educators Association Area competition, eight Harlingen CISD students were selected to represent the school district at the TMEA All-State Clinic and Convention.
All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive.
To qualify for All-State ensembles, students go through a series of audition rounds in which their musical skills are put to the test. More than 70,000 students initially entered the TMEA All-State competitive process. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in one of 18 Texas All-State ensembles sponsored by the Band, Orchestra, and Vocal Divisions.
The following students earned a position in one of the All-State ensembles:
Emilia Bautista, 2nd Chair, Mixed Choir (the highest ensemble)
Jhamilla Escober, Treble Choir
Mijael Silguero, Mixed Choir
(Ashlynn Burns, Alternate)
Katy Quellhorst, 5th Chair, Mixed Choir
Berta Longoria, 3rd chair, Bb Clarinet
Mark Herrera, 1st chair, Contra Bass Clarinet
Fernando Garcia, All-State Jazz, Tenor Trombone
Abby Garza, All-State Jazz, Bass Guitar
