Welcome to NOFA

The National Orchestra For All (NOFA) challenges disadvantage through music and gives 11-18 year olds the life-changing experience of making music with others.

Get involved!

Do you long to pick up that old instrument, blow the dust off and make music with others, specifically an inspirational group of young musicians?

Have you always wanted to learn an orchestral instrument, but never quite got round to it?

Do you want a life-enhancing excuse to learn a different instrument? Were you forced to play the piccolo but yearn to play the tuba?


If your answer to any of these questions is ‘YES’ then NOFA MUSICAL CHAIRS is the event for you.

at the Royal Academy of Music

This year's 2 day Easter Course took place at Highbury Grove School and the Royal Academy of Music. NOFA players from across England were joined by jazz collective Tomorrow's Warriors, Kuumba Youth Music, and the Junior Department of the Royal Academy of Music for an orchestral project exploring connections between classical music and jazz and celebrating musical diversity. The project culminated in a spectacular performance in Duke's Hall to an audience of 200.
