All State Info

The Texas All-State Choirs are some of the most prestigious in the nation. The audition process begins early in the school year with over 20,000 students state-wide participating and is narrowed down to 500 through a series of auditions in the following months. Earning a spot in the Texas All-State Choir is an outstanding accomplishment. All-State students are given special consideration when auditioning for college music scholarships, which are awarded to music and non-music majors. Students will grow tremendously in their singing and music reading skills as they participate in the process.

Who is Eligible to Audition: All choir students in grades 9 – 12 are eligible. Chorale students are STRONGLY encouraged to participate.

We are so proud of the students who represented College Park HS at the Region 9 All-State Choir Auditions this year!
