NAfME is continuing to monitor the health updates, guidance and travel information provided by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC),  World Health Organization (WHO) and the Florida Department of Health in both Orange and Osceola Counties on Coronavirus to ensure we are taking all recommended precautions.

Based on today’s information, NAfME plans to host the All-National Honor Ensembles as scheduled in Orlando, FL in November. The situation surrounding the virus is very dynamic, and NAfME will continue to engage health and security authorities on any planned or anticipated measures that may impact travel and our ability to host the upcoming event. Any and all updates will be posted on this page and shared widely with students, directors, parents, and sponsors.

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