Iowa Junior Honors Orchestra Festival is a state-wide honors string orchestra experience. It is a one-day affair, held in conjunction with the Iowa All-State Music Festival and the Iowa Music Educators Association state convention, Nov. 16-17. It is held on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, in the same complex as the convention and All-State. There are two orchestras of equal ability in the festival, each with about 90 participants. The groups are composed mainly of 8th and 9th graders, with a few advanced 7th graders.
