A total of 48 Round Rock ISD student musicians, vocalists and dancers have achieved positions in the All-State band, orchestra, choir and dance team.
All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. More than 1,700 students are selected through a process that begins with more than 64,000 students around the state vying for the honor to perform in one of the 15 band, orchestra or choir ensembles, according to the Texas Music Educators Association.
All-State dance team members are selected to participate in the Texas Dance Educators Association (TDEA) annual convention, which includes professional choreography sessions.
“We are incredibly proud of the 48 students who have achieved All-State status in their fine arts fields,” Director of Fine Arts Lisa Roebuck said. “It takes hard work and dedicated practice to be named one of the best musicians, vocalists and dancers in Texas and each of these students greatly deserve this honor.”
