Five CSISD students named all-state orchestra

Posted on 12/09/2022

A total of five orchestra students from A&M Consolidated and College Station High Schools were recently selected to perform with a Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Texas All-State Orchestras and 6A Symphonic Band.

The performances will be held Saturday, February 11, 2023, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio as part of the TMEA Clinic/Convention.

CSISD All-State Orchestra/Band Members (Ensemble)

  • Andrew Kim, violin- CSHS (Symphony)
  • Christina Yum, violin- AMCHS (Symphony)
  • Hannah Jeong, cello- CSHS (Symphony)
  • Porto Ortiz-Arrieta, bass- CSHS (Philharmonic)
  • Minyoung Kim, bass- CSHS (6A Symphonic Band)

Minyoung Kim has made the 6A Symphonic Band.  It is common practice to add two bass players in each Texas All State Band.

These students were chosen for this prestigious honor through a competitive process held this year across the state at district, region, and area levels, and they are under the direction of Jason Hooper (CSHS) and Jane McCormick (AMCHS).

High school students selected to perform in the All-State concerts have competed through an audition process, and it is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. 

Out of more than 70,000 students from around the state who audition, 1,875 are selected through the audition process for this honor to perform in one of 18 ensembles in orchestra, band and choir. Only the top 2.6 percent of musicians who initially audition become All-State musicians.

All-State students will participate in three days of rehearsals directed by nationally-recognized conductors during the TMEA Clinic/Convention. Their performances for thousands of attendees bring this extraordinary event to a close.
