All-State Ensembles include 46 NEISD musicians

Earning a spot in the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) All-State Ensemble is one of the highest honors a young musician can achieve. This year, North East ISD had 46 band, orchestra, and choir students named All-State musicians. Thousands of students from 33 TMEA regions compete for this honor.

In all, 24 band students, eight orchestra students and 14 choir students earned this distinction. Each student selected music to perform for a panel of judges who ranked each performance at the regional, area and state level. The process this year was entirely virtual, meaning each student submitted a recording for judgment.

Congratulations to NEISD’s 2021 All-State musicians! CLICK HERE to learn more about our Fine Arts program.
