NOFA is a unique, mixed-skill level orchestra made up of 100 musicians aged 11-18 from across the UK. We don't audition our members, instead they are nominated by adults who can vouch for their commitment to music in the face of challenging circumstances and barriers to music-making.

To find out more visit their website:

This year is a specially exciting year as NOFA mark their 10th anniversary and are celebrating with special events to reflect the orchestra's unique and evolving identity.

NOFA is for musicians:

who have shown commitments to music and do not readily have access to ensemble music-making opportunities

who play any instrument

are at all stages of notation-reading. Young musicians do not need to be strong readers of music to join

who are aged 11-18 from 1st September 2020. A place for NOFA lasts two years even if the member turns 19 during this time.


If you know someone who would benefit from this opportunity and fits the criteria then nominate them now by visiting here.
