Four SAISD Students Named All-State Musicians by Texas Music Educators Association

Four SAISD Students Named All-State Musicians by Texas Music Educators Association

San Angelo ISD proudly celebrates four students from Central High School and Lake View High School who reached the highest level a high school musician can achieve through the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) by earning the distinguished honor of TMEA All-State in band, orchestra, and choir. 

Congratulations to: 

  • Arick Brooks, CHS senior, All-State Mixed Choir, tenor, 
  • Heidi Bundick, LVHS senior, All-State Band, double bass,
  • Isaac Carrales-Rodriguez, LVHS junior, All-State Mariachi, trumpet, and 
  • Mia Wilcox, CHS senior, All-State Band, flute.

“To become a member of the elite TMEA All-State band, choir, or mariachi program is something to be celebrated and applauded. The amount of talent, time, and effort given to this accomplishment says much about the musician and their dedication to perfect their craft” said SAISD Director of Fine Arts and Advanced Academics Tiffany Huebner. “SAISD is super proud of our All-State musicians and teachers who have supported them through this journey.” 

To be selected for the All-State honor, CHS and LVHS students joined over 70,000 high school musicians from across the state to audition before a panel of judges in 33 TMEA Regions. Students who ranked the highest then advanced to compete against student musicians from other TMEA Regions at the TMEA Area level, with the highest-ranking then qualifying for All-State status.

Heidi Bundick has been named a member of the All-State Band for three consecutive years, while Mia Wilcox has been honored as a member of All-State Band the last two consecutive years. This is the first year Arick Brooks and Isaac Carrales-Rodriguez have been honored as All-State musicians. 

The All-State student musicians will perform with their respective All-State ensembles on February 10, 2024 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. Nationally recognized conductors will direct the ensembles who rehearse for three days and conclude with the concert performances.

San Angelo ISD extends proud congratulations to these talented students, and commends their dedication to creating beautiful music while exemplifying the attributes of the SAISD Learner Profile. We thank our committed SAISD educators who help to develop and cultivate the talents of our students in celebration of all the ways students are smart, including: CHS Band Director Jason Jones, Mike Barry, Stephanie Ellis-Dearborn, Robert Kosko, and Caleb Lenard, CHS Director of Choirs Landon Gilmore and Sunday Vaught, LVHS Mariachi Directors Rosendo Ramos and Ezra Ramirez, LVHS Band Director Franklin Piland, and LVHS Orchestra Director Stephanie Infante.
