Young Musicians Festival

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.

Congratulations to all who participated in the 2022 YMFs!

We are entering our Post Festival phase.  This is a great time for teachers to check their student lists by logging into their teacher account and choosing "students".  You can edit student information by clicking the "pencil" icon.  This is a great way to support students who prefer a nickname one year and full name the next!  Please check to be sure you only have ONE account per student.  TEACHERS may email registrar Marjie Brake (pianochair@ymfestival.org) with questions.
