Monticello students to participate in NYSSMA Music Festival on May 9-10

More than 130 mcsd students to perform

May 1, 2014

More than 130 students from the Monticello Central School District Music Department will be participating in the Annual NYSSMA Solo and Small Ensemble Festival to be held at Tri-Valley Central Schools on May 9 and 10. 

Students from the band, chorus, orchestra, general music, guitar and piano programs will perform selections for certified music adjudicators (judges). The adjudicators will evaluate the performances and provide feedback to the students. The judging process is very similar to a college or professional audition, and students will use the feedback as part of their college/employment applications and academic portfolio. In addition, the evaluation is used as an audition for students for All County, Area All State, NYSSMA All State and NAfME National Band, Chorus and Orchestra participation.
