NFHS Band Members to Perform With TMEA All-State Band
Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) sponsors the Texas All-State audition process to promote students’ dedication to their musical knowledge and skill and to encourage TMEA member directors to support their students in this development. Beginning each fall, over 70,000 high school students across the state audition in their TMEA Region. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each instrument or voice part. A select group of musicians advances to compete against musicians from other Regions in their TMEA Area. The highestranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in one of 15 Texas All-State Bands, Orchestras, and Choirs.
Forney ISD has two musicians representing North Forney High School and Forney ISD. Madeline Burer, senior, will be performing with the TMEA All-State Band for the second time this year on contrabassoon. Madeline is the daughter of Michael and Melony Burer. She is currently ranked first in her class, and enjoys being a part of her youth ministry at church, along with spending time with her family. She would like to thank God for the ability to play her instrument, and her parents and band family for their constant love and support.
