Outstanding high school music students from across Washington have received top honors by being selected to participate in one of our 2018 Washington Music Educators Association All-State performing groups. The students listed below will join other outstanding young performers in this prestigious event. 


WMEA All-State high school bands, orchestras and choirs will meet in Yakima February 15-18.  2090 students applied for this opportunity.  From those, 1030 of our finest high school musicians will rehearse and perform in concert under the direction of world-renowned conductors.  These WMEA All-State musicians were selected through auditions to participate in this outstanding event, which is sponsored by the Washington Music Educators Association.

Many professional musicians credit their All-State experience as crucial in their decision to choose music as a career.  Thousands of others whose career paths took them in other directions have great memories of participating in this inspiring and motivating musical experience and claim that it was a life-changing experience for them.


Well-known Washingtonians who have participated in past years' WMEA All-State groups include The Seattle Post-Intelligencer's Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist and columnist David Horsey, 2008 National Teacher of the Year Andrea Peterson, and jazz saxophonist Kenny G.
