NAfME is currently accepting applications (via the ACCEPTD program) for the 2014 All-National Honors Ensembles. The deadline to apply is Friday, May 16.  For complete information – please visit the NAfME All-National Honors Ensembles Website.


Prepared Music

Students must prepare 2 minutes of the piece they used for their all-state audition, OR 2 minutes of any piece of music on their state’s approved all-state audition repertoire list. If your state does not publish an approved repertoire list, please choose a selection from standard solo repertoire that would be appropriate for high school festival or a college audition with guidance from your ensemble director (this alternative option applies to Pennsylvania applicants).

*For those students preparing an equalizer audition – this same video audition may be used for your NAfME All-National Honors Ensemble application, provided it meets the 2 minutes time requirement. If an equalizer is not required, please select 2 minutes of any piece that would be appropriate for a high school festival or college audition with guidance from your ensemble director.

After you have submitted your application, you will not be able to access it again. Be sure you have submitted the correct information. Following your submission, your application will be sent to the teacher that has nominated you for a position in the All-National Honor Ensembles where they will provide a recommendation and other personal information.

You will be contacted by NAfME staff in July 2014 regarding an admission decision for each ensemble.

If you have any questions, please contact Jane Balek at or 703-860-4000 ext.228.
