All-State Orchestra

The KMEA All-State Orchestra performs each year at the annual In-Service Workshop at the Century II Convention Center in Wichita. Students are selected via a rigorous audition process that starts at the district level. Students who perform at the district level are then eligible to audition for selection to the All-State instrumental ensembles. Thus, the All-State student musicians are truly “the best of the best.”

A pre-concert reception will be held for parents, family and friends of students in the All-State Orchestra. Cookies will be provided.

The Reception will sell-out, so purchase your tickets early. At the Family Reception, attendees will hear from the All-State Orchestra conductor. Dr. Charlie Menghini, a renowned advocate for music in our schools, will also speak. Reception doors will open at 1:30 PM. THOSE IN ATTENDANCE AT THE RECEPTION WILL HAVE EARLY-ADMISSION TO THE CONCERT HALL BEFORE OTHER AUDIENCE MEMBERS ARE ADMITTED.
For a student to participate in a KMEA All-State ensemble, the sponsoring teacher must be a member of KMEA.
