Each year, thousands of high school musicians across the state audition in their geographic area. Individually, students perform for a panel of judges. Student musicians who rank the highest advance to compete against student musicians from other parts of PMEA Regions. The highest-ranking student musicians at the PMEA Region level qualify to perform in one of six Pennsylvania All-State music ensembles.

The selected student musicians will perform at the annual PMEA All-State Festival in Erie, Pennsylvania April 18-20, 2024. Nationally recognized conductors at the convention direct the groups who rehearse for two days and conclude with a performance. Learn more at
