Every year, the Texas Private School Music Educators Association holds an audition for placement in one of the four select all-state ensembles. Students from across the State of Texas compete against hundreds of young musicians for a position in one of these ensembles. The students who are selected attend a intensive three-day clinic in late January to rehearse and prepare a concert with a professional conductor. These six young musicians will be joined by Jeff Jinn (12th grade, Choir) and John Wells (9th grade, Jazz Trumpet) for All-State 2023.
