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.
Each entrant is sponsored by their individual teacher, who maintains a membership with the Schubert Club.
