Perry Aw, a freshman at TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas, was selected for the first violin section of the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Region XI Symphony Orchestra. He was one of 16 chosen for this honor out of more than 100 violinists who auditioned.
TMEA sponsors the Texas All State audition process, which begins with more than 55,000 students from around the state. About 1,500 are chosen for regional bands, choirs and orchestras. Top-ranking musicians selected from regional auditions go on to area competitions, and the highest-ranking musicians judged at the area level qualify to perform with All State ensembles at the annual state TMEA convention.
