All-State Hall of Fame

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.
