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.

2016 Live Stream Update

Unfortunately our streaming provider has had a major issue and can not stream our event.  While disappointing this is out of our control.  

There is some good news: we are able to send our stream to YouTube and you will be able to watch the evening session tonight free of charge.


Again we are sorry about all this and are very disappointed in the streaming provider that we have had good luck with in the past but apparently not this year.
