Two Central High School students have been selected to participate in the Georgia Music Educators Association (GMEA) All-State Band. This will be the 4th time for junior, Makayla Parson (French horn), and the first time for sophomore, Emanuel Armira (alto saxophone).
The GMEA Georgia All-State Band is an auditioned band that includes some of the best student instrumentalists from around the state of Georgia. In order to be accepted, students must first get passed a rigorous first round district audition. Following this audition, a select few are invited to compete at the state level. Out of more than 1800 auditioning students, only a few hundred are selected to play in one of the five All-State ensembles.
The Georgia All-State Band event will be held March 2-4, 2023 at the Classic Center in Athens, Georgia. Central High School’s band directors are David Warren and Riley Mitchell.
