Over 1,000 students from across the NYSSMA Zone 7 will perform a solo or small ensemble selection out of the NYSSMA manual, sight read, and perform scales for a graded evaluation. These evaluations help students earn acceptance into various honor performing ensembles including All-County, Area All-State, and All-State. The festival will run from 4:00pm-9:00pm on Friday and 8:00am-4:00pm on Saturday.
