OrlandoFest at the Universal Orlando Resort

Orlando Music Festival for middle school and high school students. 

Take center stage and showcase your musical talents in Orlando, Florida at OrlandoFest!

OrlandoFest grew from the collaboration of multiple previous student Music Festivals in 2010.  With the help of the Universal Orlando® Resort, OrlandoFest is thrilled to bring this exciting Music Festival and Performance Experience to you!  OrlandoFest seeks to provide the highest quality, education-based musical experience for each student, participant and Director.  We seek to provide desired reinforcement of the musical concepts being taught within the classroom and studio.

OrlandoFest has 3 fantastic options to choose from:
  • OrlandoFest’s Music Festival is held in Orlando, Florida on Fridays and Saturdays from March through early June. Each educationally-sound OrlandoFest performance will provide your young artists the opportunity to perform in quality venues and receive positive feedback from nationally renowned adjudicators. When your ensemble participates in OrlandoFest, you will perform before nationally renowned adjudicators in a state-of-the-art performing arts center located in close proximity to Universal Orlando® Resort. Your ensemble will enjoy the excitement of celebrating their performance at the OrlandoFest Gala Awards Ceremony at the conclusion of each festival weekend! .
  • OrlandoFest’s Workshops are held in Orlando, Florida all year around and offer a great educational trip without the stress of competition! Our customized Workshops are appropriate for elementary, middle, and high school ensembles of all levels. Concert bands, jazz ensembles, orchestras, concert choirs, and show choirs will experience a fast-paced, focused workshop where they learn to play or sing together at a new level- perhaps, beyond where they thought possible! Workshops Available Fall 2019 & Spring 2019.
  • OrlandoFest’s Show Choir Spectacular is held over the course of a single weekend in the spring season. Not only will your ensemble have the opportunity to compete against their peers in the beautiful city of Orlando, but they will also get the added thrills and excitement of the Universal Orlando® theme parks.  Your show choirs will have a truly electrifying experience by participating in the OrlandoFest Show Choir Spectacular!
