The Celebration of Young Musicians is designed to give 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students a memorable musical experience and to provide teachers with an opportunity to observe, share, and learn.
Each festival features a guest clinician/director and two outstanding music teachers from the area. The culminating event at each site will be a concert led by the guest clinician. There is no limit to the number of CYM festivals that can be held throughout the state!
