All-State Choirs

The KMEA All-State Choirs performs each year at the annual In-Service Workshop. Students are selected via a rigorous audition process that starts at the district level. Students with the top audition scores who perform at the district level are then eligible for selection to the All-State Choirs. Thus, the All-State student musicians are truly “the best of the best.”
