WMEA serves band, choir, orchestra and jazz students in grades 9-12 through annual All-State groups.  Students audition for the opportunity to perform with the best high school musicians in the state under the baton of a nationally-renowned director.

In addition, MENC sponsors All-Northwest groups every other year, providing opportunities for students from six northwest states.

The groups offered each year are listed below.

Audition packets will be posted late summer each year.  Student auditions occur every fall.
