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.
