NMMEA All-State Festival Concert - Bands

Each year the New Mexico Music Educators Association (NMMEA) holds its annual All-State Music Festival and IN-Service Conference. It is held in the first two weeks of January on the campus of the University of New Mexico (UNM). This year All-State will be held on January 10-13, 2018 and marks the 74th NMMEA All-State. Students from the entire state of New Mexico audition in the fall for a position in one of eight All-State ensembles including 3 bands, 2 choirs, 2 orchestras, and a guitar ensemble. Their audition is scoring and ranked by a panel of adjudicators and based on their audition scores students with the highest scores are placed in one of the eight ensembles.
 Over 940 students are selected to the 8 All-State ensembles. Nationally renowned guest conductors are hired to rehearse each ensemble for two full days culminating in a full day of concerts held in UNM’s Popejoy Hall on Saturday, January 13, 2018. Tickets for the All-State concerts are $7.00 for adults and $3.00 for students.
NMMEA invites you to attend at least one of our concerts and hear great literature performed by almost a thousand of New Mexico’s top high school musicians.
