Students to participate in annual music festival

May 5, 2017

 More than 100 students from the Monticello Central School District Music Department will participate in the Annual NYSSMA Solo and Ensemble Festival to be held at Liberty High School on May 5 and 6, 2017. Students from the Band, Chorus, Orchestra, Jazz, Guitar and Piano programs have prepared selections that certified music adjudicators will evaluate and provide feedback on the student’s accomplishment. The process used is very similar to a college audition or professional audition and students are able to use this 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, Jazz and Orchestra participation. The event is not open to the public but pictures and testimonials will be posted to Monticello music's twitter page
