Who is the Yamaha Music Europe Foundation (YMEF)?
The Yamaha Music Foundation of Europe (YMFE), the predecessor organization of today's YMEF, was founded in 1989. It was based in Milton Keynes in the United Kingdom for many years until it was decided in 2021 to transfer the Foundation's activities to Rellingen in Germany, which is where the headquarters of Yamaha Music Europe GmbH is located. Following this, the Yamaha Music Foundation of Europe became Yamaha Music Europe Foundation e.V.
