NYSSMA® 2023 All-State Registration

All State Application Instructions

NYSSMA has moved to a new All-State Application platform. If you completed applications in previous years, then you should have received an email asking you to create a password in the new platform.  If you are new to submitting applications, you will need to contact the NYSSMA Office (see below).  Please know that there is a verification process that could take up to 15 minutes and that verification email may go to a spam folder.

  • Each teacher (director of performance group ONLY) must enter their own students’ applications.
  • Do NOT mail applications to Festival Host. Applications are electronic ONLY.
  • Do NOT make DUPLICATE applications for a single adjudication. After an application is completed, you can go back and edit it. You will not be able to print a copy of the application.
  • If a student is doing multiple auditions, after the first application is completed, other applications completed for the same student will automatically populate with the student’s information.
  • To complete an application, you will need:
