Student musicians selected to top performing groups
December 5, 2012
Dozens of local students are among the state’s top performers that have been chosen to participate in one of the Washington Music Educators Association’s 2013 All-State Honor or one of the National Association for Music Education’s All-Northwest performing groups.
The group of school musicians from throughout the state and region will rehearse and perform in concert under the direction of world-renowned conductors. The All-State high school honor groups and the All-Northwest groups will meet in Portland, Ore., Feb. 14-17, 2013. Junior All-State groups, grades 5-8, will meet in Vancouver Feb. 16.
The participants were selected through auditions sponsored by the Washington Music Educators Association. WMEA received more than 3,800 applications for all groups combined.
This year’s group includes students from around the plateau.
