What is Orchestras for All?  

Orchestras for All is a national youth music charity, breaking down barriers to give young people life-changing musical experiences. For more information, please visit our website.  


What is NOFA? 

National Orchestra for All (NOFA) is a non-auditioned, free, inclusive national youth orchestra. We welcome young people aged 11-18 from all backgrounds, with any level of musical ability, playing any instrument!  


NOFA is a two-year programme (2023-2024) where young people attend in-person residentials and digital events.  


Young people who take part in NOFA 

  • play incredible music with other young people from all walks of life 
  • learn, have fun, and develop both musically and socially 
  • improve their wellbeing and confidence within a supportive, safe and nurturing environment 


How can you apply?  

For full details, please read the NOFA application pack HERE through which you will find the following forms.


To apply, two forms must be completed.

  • Form 1 is completed by the applicant, with support from an adult if needed and they must have parental/ guardian consent CLICK HERE
  • Form 2 is completed by the nominator CLICK HERE


The nominating adult can be a teacher, community music leader, support worker, youth worker, charity worker or other equivalent professional. If that’s not possible for the young person, then a parent or guardian can be the nominator.
