NAfME All-National Honor Ensembles


NOTICE OF IN-PERSON CANCELLATION: 2020 NAfME All-National Honor Ensembles

Thank you for your patience concerning information about the 2020 NAfME All-National Honor Ensembles (ANHE) program.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person combined Amplify 2020 NAfME PreK-12 National Conference, Music Research and Teacher Education Conference, and All-National Honor Ensembles, originally scheduled to take place November 4-8 in Orlando, FL. The health and safety of our members, students, and event participants was, and remains, our priority.

In light of this decision, NAfME is working on planning a virtual event for the 2020 All-National Honor Ensembles program. Staff will communicate with students, their parents, and their directors as information becomes available.

Thank you for your understanding.


Notifications regarding application status have been sent to all students, their parents, and directors.

The 2020 ensembles will meet at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, under the leadership of top conductors in the field of music education. The ensembles will be comprised of:
