    Mission Statement

    The mission of the Fine and Performing Arts Department of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District is to provide
    students with the necesary skills to think creatively, work collaboratively, synthesize their experiences, and make cultural
    connections to the world around them. It is with these skills and insights that the students of Oyster Bay will become the
    innovative leaders of the 21st century, capable of effecting change in their professions and communities.

    Cancellations due to school closures:

    All NYSSMA Festivals (Jericho Piano, Oyster Bay Level 1-4, Syosset Level 5, 6, AS), and major ensemble festival (Hofstra and Mineola)

    *Notice regarding All-State 2020 

    High School teachers are being asked to complete an All-State Recommendation for those current 11th grade students that
    participate in your performing group(s), and auditioned for All-State in spring, 2019, earning a 98 - 100 score. After a
    review of the submitted recommendations, it may be possible to assemble All-State Ensembles and move forward with
    the planning for a 2020 All-State Program. We recognize that any large scale assembly of people is
    contingent on the health and safety of our nation and our region. If, however, circumstances improve and schools can open
    with normal activities, this may present an option for providing a modified one-year All-State program. 

     

    Festival Season Refunds
    The NYSSMA Office will start to open on a very limited basis in the near future.  When we gain more consistent access to the office we will begin the process of refunding festival season fees.  We anticipate this process could take a few months to complete.  We will provide more information as we work through the process.  Thanks for your patience and understanding.
