NYSSMA will host a reduced festival in December. Each year, thousands of student musicians in New York State compete for an opportunity to be selected for the NYSSMA Conference All-State Music ensembles.
Admission to these highly selective groups is based upon the score received the previous spring during the NYSSMA Solo Evaluation Festival, where each student performed before a certified adjudicator who carefully evaluated every aspect of their performance.
A special thank you to M-W teachers, Lauren Byrne, David Crone and Richard Regan, who helped prepare these students for this honor.
