"The gift of live music plants trees in the mind of a child".
Misty Beyer, Executive Program Director
The FREE YOUNG PERSONS’ CONCERT series, now in it’s twentieth season, takes place Saturday afternoons in Southport, where monthly programs feature classical music as well as music from far-away lands, performed by acclaimed ensembles and soloists.
THE SCHOOL RESIDENCY PROGRAM has offered public schools the opportunity to work with professionals who coach, mentor and perform for students enrolled in music programs of the schools. Since 2007, a unique component of MFY’s school residency program has been the MUSICAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM. Middle School string orchestras from Bridgeport and Weston rehearse and perform together throughout the year, traveling to each other’s schools, sharing pizza and music, bridging differences and uniting in the study of their instruments.
The JERRY MALAFRONTE SCHOLARSHIP given in memory of Jerry Malafronte, is offered each year to Fairfield music students graduating from Warde and Ludlowe HS to continue their music studies in college or a music conservatory.
The Young Artist Showcase Series The Young Artist Ensemble Showecase provide opportunities for young musicians to share their music and perform in our community.
