    Registration for the 2023 New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Festival is open now through February 17. We are happy to announce that this year's festival will be held at Clarkstown High School South. To register, please fill out the registration form below and return it to your child's music teacher:

    NYSSMA sponsors festivals each spring at which students have the opportunity to perform solos and small ensembles for an impartial adjudication. Judges hear each student perform a graded selection, sight reading and scales/rudiments from the NYSSMA Manual. Students are given a written evaluation which includes comments and a grade. All students in grades 1-12 are eligible to participate. We invite you to participate and share your child's music with the greater community.
