The Young Musicians Festival is a non-competitive performance event for school-aged music students. It is held annually under the auspices of The Schubert Club of Fairfield County, Inc., a nonprofit organization promoting music education in the community. The Festival Committee, a department of The Schubert Club, and the volunteer services of more than one hundred private music teachers in the area make this event possible.
