Lake View Students Selected to All-State Band

January 24, 2019

Lake View High School students Gavin Davis (tuba) and Lillian Street (string bass) were recently selected for the Association of Texas Small School Bands (ATSSB) All-State Band.

Davis and Street will perform with the ATSSB All-State Symphonic Band in San Antonio, Saturday, February 16, 2019 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center as part of the 2019 Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Convention.

All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. Davis and Street were two of 1,780 students chosen through a competitive process that began with over 72,900 students from around the state vying for this honor to perform in one of 15 ensembles (bands, orchestras, and choirs).

The process began with auditions hosted by 33 TMEA Regions. Individual musicians performed selected music for a panel of judges who ranked each instrument. From this ranking, a select group of musicians advanced from their Region to compete against musicians from other areas in eight TMEA Area competitions. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualified to perform in a TMEA All-State music group. Only the top 2.4% of musicians who initially auditioned became All-State musicians.

These 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 will bring this extraordinary event to a close. For the All-State concert schedule, go to the Performances section of www.tmea.org/convention.

Davis and Street perform at Lake View High School under the direction of Cindy Costello and Lance Mosley.

Congratulations to Gavin and Lillian for this prestigious honor!
