It is with great sadness that we share the news that our friend and colleague Jenn Milne passed away after only a short illness. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this hard time. Jenn served on the AFYM Committee for many years, and her advice and good sense was valued by us all. Jenn organised the Primary Schools morning efficiently and calmly and it’s smooth running was always because of her steadying hand. She always enjoyed the company of the children and was thrilled by their performances, she will be missed very much.

As well as the performances the whole presentation [AFYM Concert] was so enjoyable and Penny and the AFYM Committee are to be congratulated for the hard work and organisation in creating such a flagship of what can be done for and with young musicians. We really look forward to working more closely with AFYM to support you and to do much more for local young musicians by giving them access to our Festival artists through workshops and performanceGower Festival
The AFYM played an absolutely integral part in my musical development; the performance experience and wise council that I received during my many years of attending the festival have been invaluable. Each year the AFYM team achieves a rare and wonderful feat creating an environment which strives for the highest artistic standards but in a warm and nurturing wayAnne Denholm
Kieran has thoroughly enjoyed his experience both competing and playing with the AYFM and is looking forward to next year already!
