In 2016, NYSSMA, the New York State School Music Association,
celebrates its 84th year as the largest state affiliate of the National
Association for Music Education (NAfME). NYSSMA’s mission is to
advocate for and improve music education across New York State by
promoting and producing appropriate activities and programs for
its membership and students in member school music programs.
year, NYSSMA's Spring 2016 Solo & Ensemble Festival in Babylon was
filled with high notes, from trumpeters to flautists and vocalists to
violinists. Several students from Saints Cyril and Methodius in Deer
Park attended this year, with shiny instruments and clean music sheets
in hand. They were ready for the day of auditioning and did their school
proud with top marks.
Congratulations to all the talented musicians who represented Saints Cyril and Methodius School so well!
