Area All-State
Music Festival

Each NYSSMA Zone across New York State hosts a music festival for high school music students. The festival takes place over the course of two days, Friday evening and Saturday. At the conclusion of the festival, the musicians perform a concert for the public. For Zone 4, a traditional festival includes the following ensembles:

  • Full Orchestra

  • Treble Chorus

  • Concert Band

  • Mixed Chorus

To be considered, students must perform a level 5, 6, or All-State NYSSMA Solo during the previous school year. Students will work with their music teacher to submit their NYSSMA score sheet and an application for consideration. Eligible students are selected by a panel of music teachers across the Zone.
