HPHS Choir and Orchestra students named to TMEA All-State ensembles

Freshman choir student Harrison Piering was selected to perform with the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) All-State Tenor-Bass Choir.
HPHS All State Choir student“Earning a chair in a Texas All-State Ensemble speaks to the work effort as much as the natural abilities of our musicians," HPISD Director of K-12 Choral Music Natalie Walker said. "Countless hours are spent building your individual skill and preparing for these auditions. We are so proud of Harry, committing himself to this process and earning this honor during his Freshman year!”
Junior pianist Elijah Son earned a spot in the TMEA All-State Symphonic Band.
"The Highlander Orchestra is extraordinarily proud of Elijah’s accomplishment in being named to an All-State ensemble." HPHS Director of Orchestras Matt Epperson said. "This is an echelon of achievement that few Texas music students can attain. We wish him the best of luck at TMEA and hope that it is an experience that he will remember forever."

Students selected to perform in the All-State concerts have competed through auditions to qualify at the state level. All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. 1,875 students are selected through a process that began with more than 70,000 students from around the state vying for the honor to perform in one of 18 ensembles.
The students will attend clinics and perform in concert at the annual TMEA Convention in February in San Antonio.
