All-State Orchestra

UPDATE: The 2021 TMEA Clinic/Convention will be hosted as a virtual event. The audition path leading to the selection of 1,800 All-Staters will remain a rigorous and meaningful journey, and we encourage students to continue their musical development toward such an achievement. (August 31, 2020)

Starting each fall in auditions across Texas, the best high school orchestra students are ultimately selected to rehearse and perform during the annual TMEA Clinic/Convention in one of three orchestras: Sinfonietta Orchestra, Philharmonic Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, and the best mariachi students are selected to the TMEA All-State Mariachi Ensemble.
