Orchestra Festival

The NJMEA Orchestra Festivals take place every winter (January/February). There are two dates – one for middle/junior high school ensembles and one for high school ensembles. Any orchestra director who is a NAfME member can apply to bring an ensemble. Ensembles may be string orchestra or full orchestra.
