Katy ISD Celebrates Exemplary Musical Achievement

(KATY ISD) – The Katy Independent School District has announced the achievement of 71 of its musicians who have earned the prestigious All-State honors following a rigorous and highly competitive selection process. According to the Texas Music Educators Association which sponsors the Texas All-State competition, only 2.6 percent of musicians who initially audition earn All-State recognition, making this accomplishment particularly special.

This competitive process begins across the state with more than 70,000 students competing through auditions hosted by 33 TMEA Regions. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each instrument or voice part. Based on this ranking, a select group of musicians advance from their respective region to compete against musicians from other areas in eight TMEA Area competitions. The highest-ranking musicians from the TMEA Area competitions earn the privilege to perform at the 2024 TMEA Convention in San Antonio, an event that attracts an annual attendance of more than 30,000 attendees.

 “We are incredibly proud of these students for their remarkable accomplishment in earning All-State honors. This achievement is a testament to their unwavering dedication and musical abilities, as well as the support of their families,” said Damon Archer, Executive Director of Fine Arts. “I also want to extend my deep appreciation to our exceptional teachers whose role has been instrumental in shaping these accomplished musicians.”
