2017-2018 CHHS All-State Singers

 

Texas Music Educators Association, or TMEA, is an organization of over 20,000 Texas school music educators. It is responsible for auditions and concerts for Texas All-Region and All-State Choirs. GCISD competes in TMEA Region 31 Large School All-State Auditions and is a part of TMEA Area B.  There are 4 audition levels in the All-State Process. The final audition, Area, is held to determine membership in the All-State Choirs.

 

For many of our students, the journey to All-State begins with attendance at one of the many summer camps offered by Texas Universities. Popular camps fill quickly, so please take care of registration early.
