The NAFME All-Eastern Honors Ensembles, consisting of a concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed chorus, treble voice chorus, and jazz ensemble, are organized by members of The National Association for Music Education. Student participation from each state is determined by a percentage of the total NAFME Eastern Division membership, with no state given less than 2 percent representation.

Each of the state music educators associations in the Eastern Division oversee the selection process in their state during the spring and early fall of the year before the event and compile ranked lists of recommended juniors and seniors for consideration. The method used to compile the lists varies from state to state, although all recommended students must have participated (or will be participating in) their home all-state festivals.

The 2015  NAFME  All-Eastern  Honors  Jazz Ensemble  will perform  on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the Rhode Island Convention Center.   The 2015 NAFME All-Eastern Honors Treble Voice Chorus and Mixed Chorus will perform on Sunday, April 12, 2015, at 11 a.m. and the Band and Orchestra on April 12, 2015 at 1 p.m. Both concerts will be at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium, Providence, Rhode Island.
