Young Musicians Festival

The purpose of the Young Musicians Festival is to provide a non-competitive performance environment for students of public school age. The $65 Teacher Fee provides access to the Festival and also an annual membership to the Schubert Club and its collaborative musical culture.

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 in a category, the student receives a gold cup. Further points are accumulated toward a second or third gold cup.

We are planning to have all the Young Musicians Festivals live this season.

Although we now have the capability to offer an online Festival, it is hoped that we will not have to use that option.

Any questions regarding applications should be directed to the YMF Registrar, Marjie Brake - 46 Glenarden Rd., Trumbull CT 06611
