Youtube Recordings of the All State Music


All-State Process, Dates and Fees

In Texas, the All-State Choir audition process begins with approximately 20,000 students and is narrowed down to 500 through a series of auditions. It is an outstanding accomplishment to earn a spot in the Texas All-State choir. These students are given special consideration when auditioning for college music scholarships, which are awarded to music and non-music majors. Students will grow tremendously in their singing and music reading skills as they participate in the process. Students will earn letter jacket points for attending each audition in which they participate.


Virtual Camps where students can learn all
of the All State Music:

Lamar All State Camp 7/19 - 7/22 $100.00 

We hope to have a TISD District Camp in August. I will let you know if we are able to have it.

Who may audition?All choir students in grades 9 - 12 are eligible. Chorale students are STRONGLY encouraged to participate. Participation for JV students will be a consideration in a student’s choir placement at the end of the year.


Fee (TBA at our August meeting)
