All State Musicians Announced

Many students of the East band, orchestra, and choir auditioned to be a part of the Kansas Music Educators Association (KSMEA) All-State band, jazz band, orchestra, or choir on Saturday, Jan. 11 in Salina, Kan. This is the highest honor a musician can receive in the state of Kansas. The students who made it will be performing at the State Convention on Saturday, March 1.

“I felt a little relieved to know the [All-State] results since we’d been waiting for them since Saturday,” senior Michelle Lu said. “It’s the wait that’s the worst, probably even more so than the audition. I’m really exciting to be playing in the band and looking forward to seeing what the repertoire is this year.”
