FWISD TMEA All-State Musicians 2024
Fort Worth ISD All-State Musicians

Fort Worth ISD students from Benbrook, Carter-Riverside, I.M. Terrell, Paschal, Southwest, Western Hills, and Young Women's Leadership Academy high schools reached the highest level a high school musician can achieve by earning their place in Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) All-State band, choir, jazz, mariachi, or orchestra ensemble.


Each fall, over 70,000 high school musicians across the state audition in their TMEA Region. Individually, students perform for a panel of judges. Student musicians who rank the highest advance to compete against student musicians from other Regions in their TMEA Area. The highest-ranking student musicians at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in one of 18 Texas All-State bands, orchestras, and choirs.


The 20 Fort Worth ISD student musicians who qualify will perform at the annual TMEA Clinic/Convention in San Antonio, Texas, from Feb. 7 – 10, 2024. Nationally recognized conductors at the convention direct the groups who rehearse for three days and conclude with a performance.
