Volunteers make our show possible.  Join us in making memories for thousands of students and fans! Volunteers receive free admittance to the show, free T-shirt, a free lunch and free parking!  Click on the volunteer icon on the right for more information and to sign up.

General admission tickets will be available at the box office the day of the show. Adult General Admission $10, Student & Senior General Admission $7, Standing-room Only $5 (only sold if GA sells out).  NEW THIS YEAR: Additional general admission seating is being added on either side of the concession stands.

Small, non-professional, single frame “point and shoot” cameras are allowed into the venue. However, use of “professional cameras” is prohibited at YIM events unless the user has formal media credentials (photo ID from media employer) and prior written approval from Youth In Music. Any camera with a detachable lens or lens that extends to four or more inches is considered a “professional camera” and thus prohibited.  Tripods and monopods are NOT allowed.

Our schedule in 2015 will include Class A, AA, and AAA Championships in parallel with Minnesota State Championships in Class A, AA, and AAA,  similar to our afternoon sessions, previously in the Metrodome. After receiving feedback from band directors, we will NOT hold the evening Regional Championships until we return to an indoor stadium.
