All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. Texas Music Educators Association, or TMEA, is responsible for the auditions and concerts for Texas All-Region and Texas All-State Choirs. KISD competes in TMEA Region 30 Large School All-State Auditions. There are four audition levels in the All-State process. The final audition determines membership in the All-State Choirs.

For many of our students, the journey to All-State begins with attendance at one of the many summer camps offered in Texas. Camps fill up quickly, so please register early if interested.

The All-State audition process begins in the fall throughout the state in each of the TMEA Regions. Students perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each voice part. From this ranking, a select group of musicians advances from their Region to TMEA Area competitions and from there the highest-ranking qualify to perform during the annual TMEA Clinic/Convention in one of 18 Texas All-State ensembles, including four choirs: Mixed Choir, Treble Choir, Tenor-Bass Choir, Small School Mixed Choir.
