36 CCISD Musicians Named to the Texas Music Educators Association All-State Ensembles
Posted on 02/07/2019
TMEAThirty-six Clear Creek ISD high school musicians representing band, choir and orchestra recently earned the honor to participate in the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) All-State Ensembles. All five comprehensive CCISD high schools will have students representing the district at the annual TMEA Clinic and Convention in San Antonio on February 13-16, 2019.

Beginning each fall, more than 70,000 high school students across the state audition in their TMEA Region. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each instrument or voice part. A select group of musicians then advance to TMEA Area. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in one of 15 Texas All-State Bands, Orchestras, and Choirs, which is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. This year’s class represents one of the largest groups of students ever selected for the TMEA All-State ensembles from Clear Creek ISD.

“I am extremely proud of the 36 students that achieved this incredible accomplishment,” said Greg Goodman, CCISD Director of Visual and Performing Arts. “In order to reach such success, each student dedicated significant time to rehearse and improve her or his individual skill set to compete amongst some of the brightest and most talented musicians across the area. I also wish to thank the parents and staff for their commitment to excellence and for supplying the necessary tools, resources and guidance for the students to reach their dreams and goals.”

The students will be participating at the TMEA Clinic and Convention which is the largest music education conference of its kind in the world. They will spend four days rehearsing and performing with some of the most talented musicians across the state and will be led by world-renowned conductors.
