ZMF exists to inspire young people to pursue their passions in music and possibly make it their career. We bring together renowned, influential, international artists whom participants might not have occasion to meet and hear--except at ZMF. For many participants, ZMF is a musical turning point.
I feel like I learned so much more over two weeks than I have in years. It was an eye opening and truly life changing experience.
- Courtney Stredder (participant, 2013, 2014, 2015)
