The Norfolk Musical Arts Festival began in 1986 as work in progress by our founder, Linda Bonadeo-Boll. In March of 1987 the NMAF celebrated its 1st Annual Festival. 2020 marks our 34th year and we are proud of our success.
The Festival is generously supported by various service clubs, organizations, businesses and individuals. The Festival enjoys a dedicated group of volunteer board members who work diligently all year to ensure that we offer our competitors an exceptional and long-standing arts and cultural event in Norfolk County.
Our syllabus is distributed early in September on our website. We offer competitive and non-competitive classes in bands, choral, English and French speech arts, guitar, instruments, piano strings, vocal classical and vocal contemporary. Renowned adjudicators are hired each year and offer competitors a positive and educational experience.
