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.

2020 YMF PIANO FESTIVAL UPDATE
YMF regrets the unprecedented impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on the world and on our YMF festivals.

Refund checks for ALL YMF student fees of those YMF students unable to participate due to cancellations as well as those whose piano scores were not recorded this year are currently in process by our all-volunteer YMF team. These checks will be mailed to each YMF teacher who submitted YMF payments on their students’ behalf and teachers will then provide the refunds to their YMF students.

Piano YMF teachers have been emailed their students’ comment sheets from the first weekend’s performances. Please contact your sponsoring teacher with any questions.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
