"I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Yip's Music Festival (YMF) for another unforgettable experience this year. My first time returning to YMF in-person festival certainly has brought back memories and had a warm and supportive atmosphere. On top of that, the in-person festival was extremely different from the past years during the pandemic. It was especially meaningful to be able to perform live and share my music with the adjudicators, my fellow competitors, and their parents instead of recording at home. The adjudicators provided valuable and constructive feedback that has immensely helped me in my musical journey and preparation for the Ontario Music Festivals Association (OMFA). I am very excited for the next festival and am looking forward to joining YMF again next year!"
