Sixth-grade musicians from Memorial Grade School recently participated in the New York State School Music Association’s solo festival. NYSSMA festivals have an annual participation of more 100,000 students throughout New York State. According to Paul Grisafi, orchestra teacher, the festival provides excellent educational feedback for students and becomes an integral part of county, state, and national honor ensemble recommendations and acceptances.  Students perform scales, a solo, and sight read for an adjudicator and then receive comments and a score based on their performance.
