INSTRUMENTAL COMPETITION

CNYAMT is pleased to offer an annual instrumental competition, comprised of two divisions - intermediate and senior.  The competition is open to all instrumentalists, including winds, brass, percussion and string players, ages 10-18.  This aim of the competition is to offer students wonderful performing opportunities, constructive comments from professional judges and a chance to "warm up" their NYSSMA pieces.  Winners will receive cash prizes.  We hope to encourage students to reach their musical potential, and to cultivate confidence through new musical experiences.
