Welcome to the

New England

Music Festival Association

The New England Music Festival Association, a diverse community of music educators from public and private schools, youth ensembles, private studios and parents, is dedicated to offering high school musicians from across New England the opportunity to pursue musical excellence through solo and ensemble festivals and Concert festivals and instill in each student a lifelong interest in music as a basic human experience.

It's a new year with firsts! Our Solo and ensemble list has been updated by Lauren Churchill and Amy Ranta. Our 2024 festival will be at the Boxboro Regency, Boxborough, MA so that we can have our 97th anniversary festival concert at Mechanics Hall! Our festival will feature the entire festival enclosed in one location for the first time - rehearsing, eating, and housing. We will have our first NEMFA Jazz Ensemble at this event. And it's our first time at Mechanics Hall! What a way to kick off "NEMFA 100: 1927-2027" for the next four years! Come join us and see what we are about!
