As the 2023-24 Rotary Youth Instrumental Competition (RYIMC) kicks off, every club in District 5340 is once again invited to join in seeking out and rewarding the most musically gifted and dedicated high school students in our communities.  This long-standing Rotary tradition annually demonstrates Rotary's commitment to today's youth and tomorrow's leaders by awarding cash prizes to local young musicians demonstrating the highest levels of excellence in talent, training and love for music.  Click "Read More" to continue.
 
Now is the time to begin planning for your club's participation.  We especially urge those clubs who have not participated in recent years, or perhaps ever, to join in this very fulfilling Youth Services initiative.  The Club Level contests (preliminaries) are held in January and February, with two Regional contests (semi-finals) held in March.  This year's Finals will be held on April 20, 2024, when the District's Grand Prize of $2500 will be awarded, as well as other cash prizes to the runners-up. 

Not only has the practice and mastery of music been proven to benefit all ages and cultures, particularly developing adolescents, but music itself enhances all of our lives and our world.  Join us in this year's RYIMC!  Together, we can make beautiful music.
