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. We are so proud of the students who were selected to represent MCPS this year. Unfortunately, the All-state festival was cancelled due to COVID. Thank you to these amazing student musicians and their music teachers for submitting auditions.Students who have achieved this honor are:
