Youth In Music Marching Band Championships Eleven years ago the Youth In Music Championships were just a dream and an idea. In those years the YIM Championships have grown from 9 to 20 bands and 1,400 to 6,000 in attendance. The YIM Championships have quickly become one of the premier marching band events in the Midwest. The 2014 event was great, with a large lineup of 15 bands from two states. Join us on Saturday October 10, 2015 for the eleventh anniversary event.

For 2015, the YIM Championships will return to the campus of Farmington High School just south of Minneapolis. The 2015 event will be a single daytime show to crown class champions and the overall Minnesota state champion. The event's former venue — the HHH Metrodome — is being dismantled to make room for the new Vikings football stadium. Youth in Music plans to return to downtown Minneapolis as a prelims and finals event on October 8, 2016 when construction on the new Vikings stadium is complete.

As in past years, special guest units will perform during breaks in the contest. Past featured exhibitions have been presented by Minne-Brass, University of Minnesota Marching Band, University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse Marching Band and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Blugold Marching Band.
