MMEA Music Lists
The Maryland Music Educators Association (MMEA) maintains lists of graded music for District and State Festivals, and Solo and Ensemble adjudication.  The lists are available here as searchable Microsoft Excel files (use the arrows to access the dropdown menu for the filters), and as PDFs. 

For District and State Band, Chorus and Orchestra Festivals/ Assessments, only the Maryland State literature lists for Band, Chorus and Orchestra may be used. For District and State Wind and Percussion and String Solo and Ensemble Festivals, only the Maryland lists may be used with two exceptions: Guitar solos and harp solos may be selected from a NYSSMA Manual published within the past 10 years (2000 and forward). For District and State Vocal Solo and Ensemble Festivals, the NYSSMA Manual may continue to be used, with the Maryland supplemental list.


The NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association, the New York equivalent of MMEA), is used for vocal solo and ensemble lists and guitar and harp solo lists. To order the 2009 edition of the NYSSMA Manual, send a check (or Purchase Order) for $52 plus $16 shipping payable to NYSSMA, to NYSSMA Manual c/o Kathy Struzik, 535 Rondo Lane, Webster, NY 14580-1214.
