Youth In Music Marching Band Championships Ten 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 2013 event was great, with a large lineup of 22 bands from five states. Join us on Saturday October 11, 2014 for the tenth anniversary event.

New for 2014, the YIM Championships will be held on the campus of Farmington High School just south of Minneapolis. The 2014 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 in 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.
