Galena Park ISD All-State Hall of Fame
The Galena Park Independent School District is proud to recognize the outstanding accomplishment of those students, past and present, who have been selected to the Texas Music Educators Association's All-State band, choir or orchestra. 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.
All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. Over 1,700 students are selected through a process that begins with over 70,000 students from around the state vying for this honor to perform in one of 14 ensembles (7 bands, 4 orchestras, and 3 choirs). This competitive process begins throughout the state in auditions hosted by 33 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 eight 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.
