MAAE Support

for All-State Performance Ensembles

The Missouri Alliance for Arts Education provides support to recognize student excellence in arts education through financial assistance to sponsoring arts education organizations.

Student selection for participation in these all-state ensembles is quite rigorous, and includes preparation of challenging repertoire and successful selection through local and regional qualifying auditions. The process allows for recognition of outstanding skill as well as representation from all areas of the state.

ALL-STATE ENSEMBLES

All-State Band

All-State Choir

All-state Jazz Band

All-State Orchestra

All-State Theatre

Through these all-state ensembles, students engage in high-quality arts education experiences with renowned clinicians selected through an equally rigorous process. In addition these clinicians offer opportunities for professional development as Missouri's practicing educators observe and learn from these master teachers as they work directly with students.

"There is nothing more powerful in my personal learning as a teacher than to watch a master teacher in action with students. Being able observe all-state rehearsals and the workshops provided by clinicians directly improves my practice in the classroom and makes me a better teacher. Thanks MAAE for helping to make this possible."
