All-State Ensembles

Each year, students throughout the state of Kansas have the opportunity to audition to perform at District Festivals and at the KMEA In-Service Workshop. The audition process begins at their own school, progresses through their KMEA District Organization and culminates with selection to the All-State ensembles. Student musicians have the opportunity to audition to perform in choirs, concert bands, jazz bands and orchestras at both the district and state levels.

For a student to participate in a KMEA All-State ensemble, the sponsoring teacher must be a member of KMEA.

For more information about the audition process within your district, please visit your District’s website.

All-State concerts are held at the Century II Convention Center in Wichita, Kansas as part of the annual KMEA In-Service Workshop during the last week of February.
