Thank you for your interest in applying for the 2019 NAfME All-National Honor Ensembles (ANHE). The 2019 program will be held at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, November 7-10th, and will include a Jazz Ensemble, Mixed Choir, Symphony Orchestra, Concert Band, and Guitar Ensemble.

NAfME is seeking original music written by student composers for featured performances in the 2019 Young Composers Concert and the 2019 All National Honor Choir performance as part of the NAfME National Conference in Orlando, Florida. Teachers and students are invited to submit original compositions by students for possible inclusion in the concerts. Students in elementary school, secondary school, college, and graduate school are eligible to submit compositions. 

In order to be eligible for performance, compositions must be submitted for the specific instrumentations, as outlined in the Entry Rules and Guidelines. Along with a national premiere, winning compositions may be eligible for cash awards.  Compositions submitted that fall outside of the instrumentation guidelines will be adjudicated but will not be eligible for awards or for performance.

Up to ten (10) winning composers may receive cash awards thanks to the generous support of the European American Musical Alliance (Dr. Philip Lasser, president) and the Double R Foundation.

All entrants will receive written evaluations of their compositions.

Entrants will be notified of the winners by e-mail during the week of July 15.
