NYSSMA Solo Festivals

As of March 20, 2020, all NYSSMA events (Solo Festivals, Majors, etc. and including those listed below) have been canceled due to COVID-19. So much preparation had already gone into these festivals on behalf of the student performers, the educators who prepared soloists and ensembles, and the schools who had agreed (and had begun the prep work) to host these festivals. We thank you for all of your hard work, and look forward when we can make music together again soon.

The NYSSMA leadership is working on ways to go about All-State auditions for Fall 2020. Please be on the lookout for those updates from your instructor, who will disseminate that information as it becomes available.
