Combining the demands of chamber music with orchestral performance, the musicians of NOI lead each other, performing chamber orchestra repertoire without a conductor.

New this season is the SPARK! series in the Lobby Lounge. Converse with conductors, jam with composers, mingle with student musicians and much more in our new pop-up lobby lounge. No lectures here, just fun conversation meant to spark your interest and curiosity about that evening’s performance and performers.

Drinks and snacks available from our Encore Bar starting at 6:30pm most concert evenings and after each concert. Tonight's pre-concert Lobby Lounge will be full of NOI musicians, talking about the experience of rehearsing and performing in a conductorless orchestrea. Look for the "Talk to Me!" red buttons.

The National Orchestral Institute and Festival brings together aspiring orchestral musicians from across the country for a month of dynamic music-making and professional exploration. Chosen by a rigorous, cross-country audition process, these young artists present passionate and awe-inspiring performances of adventuresome repertoire at The Clarice and in the community.
