NEMFA Solo & Ensemble Festival
Welcome to our NEMFA Adjudication Process Page!
We are so excited to offer New England high school students the opportunity to learn advanced solo repertoire and perform for entry into our NEMFA Concert Festival through our Solo & Ensemble Process each year. In order to apply, students must be sponsored by an adult (teacher, parent, director, etc.)
Students select music from our provided repertoire lists to perform for several esteemed musicians and are given numerical scores. Students who perform the most challenging "virtuoso" selections are given bonus points for performing especially challenging musical material! Those with qualifying scores are invited to attend our three day NEMFA concert festival!
Our adjudication festival looks a little bit different this year due to COVID-19. Students and sponsors will now register and submit an audio recording instead of a live, in-person, performance. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to submit your application recording!
Student Application: $15
