The 2012 All-State Honors Chorus and Band concert of the Illinois Music Educators Association’s annual conference in Peoria. The IMEA is the largest fine arts education organization in Illinois, and this concert features some of the most advanced high school band and choral students in the state. Students practiced last summer for an audition to participate in the November IMEA District ensembles, and students from each district were then chosen to participate in the All-State Conference in January. Another audition at the conference further narrowed down musicians to participate in the orchestra we’ll listen to today.
