Young Musicians Festival

​Complete information for the 2017 YMF is on the website:
www.ymfestival.org
The purpose of the Young Musicians Festival is to provide a noncompetitive performance environment for students of public school age. Teachers must be a member of the Schubert Club- non member teachers will submit a fee of $55.

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.

Any questions regarding applications should be directed to the YMF Chair, Registrar: Marjie Brake, 46 Glenarden Rd, Trumbull, Ct 06611
