Kyndal McMinn, a member of the Mineral Wells High School Choir will perform with the Texas All-State Choir in San Antonio, Saturday, February 12, 2022, at the Henry B. González Convention Center as part of the 2022 Texas Music Educators Association Clinic/Convention.

Kyndal was chosen for this prestigious honor through a competitive process held this year across the state at District, Region, and Area levels. Kyndal is a member of the Mineral Wells Varsity Choir under the direction of Jeanne Baker who is a member of the Texas Music Educators Association, a 14,000+ member organization headquartered in Austin. This is Kyndal’s first time to perform as a member of a TMEA All-State organization. Kyndal is the daughter of Daniel and Chasidy McMinn and the granddaughter of Robert and Karen Wells.

High school students selected to perform in the All-State concerts have competed through auditions to qualify at the state level. All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. 1,875 students are selected through a process that began with over 70,000 students from around the state vying for this honor to perform in one of 18 ensembles. Texas Music Educators Association sponsors the Texas All-State competition. This competitive process begins throughout the state in auditions hosted by 33 TMEA Regions. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each instrument or voice part. From this ranking, a select group of musicians advances from their Region to compete against musicians from other areas in eight TMEA Area competitions. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in a TMEA All-State music group. Only the top 2.6% of musicians who initially audition become All-State musicians.

These All-State students participate in three days of rehearsals directed by nationally recognized conductors during the TMEA Clinic/Convention. Their performances for thousands of attendees bring this extraordinary event to a close.

Founded in 1921, Texas Music Educators Association is an association of over 14,000 members dedicated to promoting excellence in music education. Go to http://www.tmea.org/convention for more information.
