The purpose of the Young Musicians Festival is to provide a non-competitive performance environment for students of public school age whose teachers are members of the Schubert Club. Teachers who are not members of the Schubert Club may pay a fee of $65 and enter as many as 10 students. For more students, a teacher’s fee of $75 is required.

Students benefit by hearing other students of the same level perform, while practicing their performance skills by preparing two pieces from a YMF syllabus. These performances are adjudicated by two professionals who give written comments and a rating (1-5 points) on the students’ performances. Each performer receives a certificate according to their achievement rating. Points accumulate annually and are noted on the student’s record. When 15 points have been acquired, the student receives a gold cup. Further points are accumulated toward a second or third gold cup.

For more information please log in to the YMF website.

Questions regarding applications should be directed to the YMF Registrar, Cheryl Lacy.
