NYSSMA All-State Update

A message from NYSSMA regarding All-State:

ALL STATE: We are moving forward with the Winter Conference and an All State Experience in December of 2020. We looked at an online program for All State Auditions but realized, after extensive study, that this would not be Equitable and Inclusive with the hundreds, if not thousands, of students who have limited or no access to the internet and their teachers.  We have chosen to keep an opportunity for students who will be Seniors in September and will use the Data from the 2019 Solo Festival Season.  All present Juniors (Class of 2021) who did an All State Solo in the Spring of 2019 (Festival 2019) and earned a rating of  98,99, or 100, which recommended them for All State, will have the opportunity to apply for this year's All State. Details on the process for recommending students will be available soon on the NYSSMA Website.  The window to recommend students will be open from May 1st through June 1st.
