Sam Sukhai - Distinction of Participating in the 2019 NYSSMA Conference All-State Mixed Choir in Rochester this past December


Each year in late August approximately 900 students are notified that they are selected to participate in the NYSSMA Conference All-State music groups. The All-State experience begins with a music educator, his or her student and an accompanist spending countless hours preparing a NYSSMA Level VI solo. Last spring, over 6,500 sophomores and juniors from across the state of New York prepared for All-State evaluations in the hope of being selected. Every student who earns a score of 98-100 must be recommended. This year over 2400 students received scores of 98 or higher and were recommended for All-State consideration. The All-State Selection Committee reviews (in no specific priority): member school music teacher recommendations, adjudicator recommendations, the candidate’s previous NYSSMA Solo ratings, grade in school, zone representation, participation in the previous year’s All-State, and participation in other performing organizations. After the master proficiency list has been established for each instrument and voice part, the “process” continues with each successful candidate assigned to positions in one of the eight All-State performing ensembles. In late August, all selected students and alternates are notified by mail, which is when we learned of Sam’s acceptance into the Mixed Choir.
