Justin Florie, a member of the Elgin High School Choir, will perform with the Texas All-State Choir in San Antonio, Saturday, February 16, 2019, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center as part of the 2019 Texas Music Educators Association Clinic/Convention. He was chosen for this prestigious honor through a competitive process held this year across the state at District, Region and Area levels. Justin Florie sings at school under the direction of Cherisa Cromer who is a member of the Texas Music Educators Association, a 19,000+ member organization headquartered in Austin. This is Justin’s first time to perform as a member of a TMEA All-State Choir. This is also the first time a student from Elgin High School has ever received this honor. Justin is the son of Shayla Florie and Carris Florie.

High school students selected to perform in the All-State concerts have competed through auditions to qualify at the state level. All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. 1,780 students are selected through a process that began with over 72,900 students from around the state vying for this honor to perform in one of 15 ensembles (bands, orchestras and choirs).
