All-State Orchestra is comprised of the best players from around the state of Georgia. The event is held in early March at the Classic Center in Athens, GA. In order to be selected as a member of All-State Orchestra, students must pass two rounds of audition. The first audition is at the district-level. Students who pass the district-level auditions move on to the state-level audition. Students are selected for All-State Orchestra at the state-level audition.
