NYSSMA Solo Festival

NYSSMA Solo Festival provides students with the opportunity to prepare a piece of solo literature or work for small ensemble to be evaluated by a trained adjudicator. In addition, students also prepare scales/rudiments (instrumental performances only) and perform sight singing or sight reading. Students receive a numeric score and written feedback based on their performance. In Oneida County, NYSSMA Solo Festival traditionally takes place in late April-early May.
