Important message from Dr. David Brown, President of NYSSMA:

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

NYSSMA Recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic has closed all of our schools and the feasibility of rescheduling almost 150 festivals is no longer possible. Therefore, we have sadly determined we can no longer move forward with the Festival Season 2020.

All 2020 solo festivals and major ensemble festivals are cancelled. 

NYSSMA leadership is currently investigating options for All-State auditions for the 2020 Winter Conference.


Dr. David M. Brown

President, New York State School Music Association 


The NMEA Day of Percussion scheduled for April 24th has been cancelled, including all rehearsals, the master classes and final performances. Thank you for your understanding while we navigate the evolving situation. Please know that the health and safety of our students, staff, clinicians and community members is our top priority
