Seventy Four MCPS High School Musicians selected for this year’s Montana All-State Band, Choir & Orchestra.


At the end of the school year, high school musicians hoping for a chance to perform in the Montana All-State music ensembles are practicing diligently to prepare audition recordings for submission.  Working with their music teachers, these students produce a sample of their skills by performing complex etudes, scales and songs for the audition.  The auditions are heard by professional musicians during the summer and results are posted at the end of August.


Seventy Four of Missoula County Public School’s finest will represent their schools and community in Great Falls at the Montana High School Associations All-State Gala Festival.  The concert concludes the Montana Music Educators Association Conference held each year in October.


Students from Big Sky, Hellgate and Sentinel will prepare the music to be performed well in advance of the two days of rehearsal scheduled for October 20 & 21st.  Guest conductors from leading universities around the country will lead Montana’s best to prepare for the final concert. It’s a highlight of the MMEA Conference each year.
