More than 100 Monticello students to participate in solo festival

May 2, 2018

More than 100 students from the Monticello Central School District’s music department will participate in the annual New York State School Music Association’s (NYSSMA) solo festival being held on May 4 and 5 at Sullivan West. Band, chorus, orchestra, general music, guitar and piano program students prepared selections to perform for certified music adjudicators who will evaluate and provide feedback on the students’ accomplishments. The process is similar to a college or professional audition, enabling students to use the feedback they receive as part of their college/employment applications and academic portfolio. The evaluation also serves as an audition for All County, Area All-State, NYSSMA All-State and NAFME National band, chorus and orchestra participation. Please note that these auditions are not open to the public.
