Performance Trip

Hours of practice. Countless rehearsals. Early mornings and late nights. Participation in the performing arts demands dedication. It requires a commitment to learning fundamental and technical skills while inspiring a love of music, dance, and showmanship. Anyone who has ever been a part of marching band, orchestra, choir, dance, or other artistic programs knows the work is tough but the reward is a nurturing of the soul. Most will jump at the chance to highlight or hone these hard-earned skills through competition, workshops, or performance venues.

What is OrlandoFest?

Fortunately, there’s an exceptional Music Festival and Performance Experience that meets the mark on all counts! OrlandoFest is a premier, education-based music experience taking place Fridays and Saturdays from March through early June in Orlando, FL*.

Performers of all ages (elementary, intermediate, middle, junior high, and high school) can participate in either Music Festivals or Workshops designed to reinforce concepts being taught in the classroom or studio.

In addition to accessing state-of-the-art facilities, each program includes admission to Universal Orlando™ – what a great way to reward the efforts of those devoted students.


Competitive and non-competitive bands, choirs, orchestras, and dance groups are invited to perform before nationally renowned adjudicators in exceptional venues with digitally recorded and written comments.

The OrlandoFest Awards Ceremony takes place at  Universal Orlando™ and includes a custom gift for each participant.

OrlandoFest also engages students’ adventurous side with admission to the world-famous Universal Orlando™ Resort! Click here to find out more about Festival options and inclusions.


Bands, choirs, and orchestras are invited to participate in OrlandoFest Workshops, musical instruction designed specifically to develop ensemble performance skills, enhance individual musicianship skills, and provide a fun learning experience.

Each two-hour Workshop focuses on a choice of topics (typically 3-4) that best meet the needs of the group. Expert clinicians will teach new and innovative techniques to a minimum of 25 participants year-round.

Best of all, admission to Universal Orlando™ is included with the Workshops as well! Click here to find out more about Workshop options and inclusions.

Regardless of which option you choose, OrlandoFest is an extraordinary experience for young performers seeking to strengthen or showcase their multitude of talents. An exclusive partnership with  Universal Orlando™ Resort makes it a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
