Katy ISD Ensemble Students Recognized with Highest Texas Music Award

(KATY ISD) - Sixty-eight Katy ISD students now hold the title of “All-State Musician,” the highest honor a music student can receive in the state of Texas. The Texas Music Educators Association released its all-state results this January following several rigorous levels of

competition.


“Every fall hundreds of Katy ISD ensemble students begin the competition process at their TMEA region and advance to compete against other student musicians from other regions,” said Damon Archer, executive director of the Katy ISD Fine Arts Department. “Only the top 2.6 percent of Texas students who audition become All-State Musicians.”
