RAMI Community Service Page

Community Service Award

Candidates (individual or organization) must be based and actively promoting or performing live music within the designated RAMI area. Recipients will have shown an on-going dedication towards creating a positive impact on the local community through music education, media presentation or entertainment. Particular consideration will be given to those who have directed their efforts to engage those members of our community who are for physical or economic reasons less able to fully participate in Rockford's rich, music scene.
