It is with regret that we have to announce the death of our colleague and former vice chair Myfanwy Kohl. She worked tirelessly for the Festival. She was loved and will be greatly missed by us all.
Last day of AFYM 2017 with Christopher Horner & @crushercrossley adjudicating. Exciting classes happening including our schools day classes!
Sarah Smith & @crushercrossley are adjudicating our fantastic performers today and what a day it is so far. Big smiles all around!
Today is all about piano and strings with our wonderful young performers. We are so lucky to have such talented young people here in Wales!
Day 1 of AFYM 2017 begins today with the first class kicking off at 9:30am with Sarah Smith & Christopher Horner adjudicating all day!
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!
