Port Isabel, Texas- November 15, 2023 –
This past weekend, Port Isabel Early College High School's music program achieved a momentous milestone as Mr. Adrian Jimenez Murat, a talented euphonium player, participated in the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) All-State audition process. The event, catering to large schools, saw Adrian compete against 36 euphonium players from Region 28 5A/6A schools, spanning from Brownsville to Donna.
In a remarkable display of skill and dedication, Adrian secured 1st place in the competition, earning the opportunity to advance to the area round. The last time such an accomplishment was seen in the halls of Port Isabel Early College High School was in 2004, making Adrian's achievement a historic moment for the school and the community. If successful in the area audition on January 6th at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Adrian will join the prestigious ranks of TMEA All-State Musicians, a recognition that has eluded the school for almost two decades.
"We are extremely proud of Adrian's accomplishments and dedication to music," said Band Director Alejandro Cavazos. "This achievement not only highlights his individual talent but also reflects the standard of excellence our music program strives for."
The area audition on January 6th will gather talented musicians from Brownsville to Laredo, encompassing the southern areas of San Antonio and Houston. Success in this round will not only solidify Adrian's place as a TMEA All-State Musician but will also open doors to additional scholarship opportunities, with universities and conservatories expressing interest in the accomplished musician.
The Point Isabel ISD community extends its gratitude for the continuous support to music and the students who contribute to the elevation of excellence. As Adrian Jimenez Murat advances in the TMEA All-State audition process, the school anticipates further achievements and the continued success of its outstanding music program.
