About the Festival

The finest musicians from around the country gather at The Clarice for a month-long festival of electrifying performances — from chamber recitals to full orchestra concerts, these artists perform with commitment and prowess. Festival events are onstage and offstage, both at The Clarice and in our community, as the musicians of NOI+F forge a bright path for the future of orchestras.

Festival events are curated to give you, our audience access to the artistic process. Join us for open rehearsals as well as pre- and post-concert events in our SPARK! Lounge where you can meet fellow festival-goers, performers and special guests. Grab a drink from our Encore bar and, for this festival only, bring it with you into the performance venue for the evening performance. Most importantly, enjoy the riveting music-making all around as you witness tomorrow’s stars on stage now!
