Each spring the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) runs solo and ensemble festivals that allow students of any age to prepare a piece of music and perform it in front of an adjudicator. The advantages of this festival are that it allows the student an opportunity to learn a quality piece of instrumental or vocal literature and develop proper technique, style, and begin to build a repertoire of music for performances. Students then perform as a soloist for an adjudicator - which is one of the National Standards for Music. The adjudicator scores the students based on predetermined criteria and that score is used to as one criteria in the nomination process for SCMEA All-County ensembles the following year. Please visit the NYSSMA page by clicking NYSSMA along the top of my website or CLICK HERE for this year's audition information. The deadline for signups is Friday, January 20, 2017.
