Coppell Choir All-State InformationStudents in the Coppell High School Choral Program are enjoy a rich history of success in the TMEA All-State audition process. Students who participate in the audition process learn valuable skills that will help them develop both their voice and their musicianship. These skills will enrich their every day rehearsal experience in choir, as well as strengthen the quality of the ensemble.
All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. Approximately the top 3% of high school singers are selected through a process that begins with over 16,000 students from around the state vying for this honor to perform in one of 3 ensembles (Mixed Choir, Women's Choir, and Men's Choir). This four-step competitive process begins throughout the state in auditions hosted by 28 TMEA Regions. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each voice part. From this ranking, a select group of musicians advances from their Region to compete against musicians from other Regions in seven TMEA Area competitions. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in a TMEA All-State music group. These All-State students participate in three days of rehearsals directed by nationally recognized conductors during the annual state TMEA Clinic/Convention. Their performances before thousands of attendees bring this extraordinary event to a close.
