We are pleased to announce the 2022 Maryland All State Ensembles.

Congratulations to the All State Musicians!

Welcome to All State 2021-2022

Dear Music Educators, Caregivers, Students, and Fellow Marylanders, 

We are pleased to present the 2021-2022 Maryland Music Educators Association (MMEA) All State Audition Information. 

Links to All State applications will be available online on October 13, 2021. Please read all instructions carefully. Make note of the application fee, and use of inclusive language in any communications to support the MMEA diversity, equity, and inclusion goals to create a safe and welcoming environment for all.

Auditioning for All State is the culmination of a preparation process that has spanned a student’s entire school career. Through their participation in music performing ensembles and intentional development of their technical and expressive tools, students develop critical thinking, self-reflection, and problem-solving skills which will serve them in their future life pursuits, whether or not those pursuits are musical. 

As the new school year begins, consider all of your students, and look for those who you perceive to have the qualities of an All State musician: excellence in musicianship, performance, practice, and self-discipline. Consider those students who would benefit not only through possible participation in an All State Ensemble, but who would benefit from the audition process. This is truly an opportunity for all students.


As a caregiver of a prospective All State musician, contact your student’s music educator for more information on the process. It will be through this collaboration that your child will be successful.


We wish you and students well in the new school year, and best wishes in the 2021-2022 MMEA All State Auditions.
