National Orchestra Festival

The National Orchestra Festival® is an annual festival held in conjunction with the ASTA National Conference. The NOF brings together youth orchestras from around the country for an unparalleled opportunity to receive placement, ratings, comments, and education from leading clinicians and adjudicators.

Orchestras are selected to participate in the NOF based on their application and supporting materials. The festival includes separate middle school and high school divisions with a choice of competition, ratings and comments, or comments-only categories.
