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
