Serving music festivals since 1984


Entry Process




Festival Hosts


Solo and Ensemble Festivals are held every year in the Northern Virginia area during the Spring.  These music festivals are run by the Virginia Band and Orchestra Directors Association (VBODA) and provide band and orchestra students the opportunity to perform a solo and/or as part of an ensemble and have their performances critiqued by a professional adjudicator. 


As a precautionary measure, VBODA has made the decision to cancel all VMEA sponsored events until further notice. This includes the 2020 Solo and Ensemble Festival.  Please work with your school band or orchestra director with any questions.  Click here to see the VBODA accouncement.
