The Young Artist Guild is a group of the most gifted musicians in the Certificate of Merit® program. Acceptance to YAG is one of the highest honors for Certificate of Merit® students.
An accepted student is granted membership in the Guild for five years upon recommendation by a panel of evaluators. During this five-year tenure, the student member may be offered semi-professional paid performance opportunities through MTAC branch-sponsored concerts.
Each year, a special Presentation Concert is held at the MTAC State Convention. This concert serves as a debut for newly selected members and as a venue for current members to perform.
