Junior High All-Region Choir Audition Results

This weekend, 14 students from Central High School traveled to Bowie Junior High School in Odessa, Texas, to compete in the TMEA Region 6 Middle School All-Region Choir Auditions. The auditions were the culmination of months of hard work and preparation by the students and directors involved in the competition. Central had a very succesful day with 8 students earning a spot in the Middle School All-Region Choir.

Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA)The Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) sponsors the Texas All-State audition process to promote students' dedication to their musical knowledge and skill and to encourage TMEA member directors to support their students in this development. Although the All-State process is only for 9-12 graders, each TMEA regional organization sponsors an All-Region Choir Clinic and Concert for students in grades 7-9 so that they will be more prepared for the All-State process once they reach high school.

A placement in an All-State ensemble is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. Over 1,500 students are selected through a process that begins with over 55,000 students from around the state vying for this honor to perform in one of 13 ensembles (bands, orchestras, and choirs). This competitive process begins throughout the state in auditions hosted by 28 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 Regions in seven TMEA Area competitions. The highest-ranking musicians 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.
