On July 1st, 2018, the new NYSSMA Manual (volume 32) went into effect. Our NYSSMA website is now in the process of catching up. As you might imagine, this will take a little time. We have updated all of the solo instrumental and vocal categories as of September 30th. We are currently working on updating the instrumental ensemble categories. You can readily tell if a section is updated by looking at the dates on that section's page. The new Manual covers the years 2018-2021, and updated pages will show these years. Older, non-updated pages will still show 2015-2018. Below is a list of the updated pages for your convenience. There have been many changes from the old Manual, some quite significant (Edition Musicus is back, for one!). Most of the classics are still there, but a few have been retired, so be careful.

As always, please refer to your current 2018-2021 NYSSMA Manual for final say on permissible works and other stipulations. This website is a sub-set of the complete Manual and is not guaranteed to be 100% perfect and is not inclusive of all stipulations (such as movements to be performed, vocal keys, cuts, etc.). Need a new Manual? Order Now, either the complete Manual with Binder or just the 2018-2021 Insert (for your existing binder).
