This award is given to an active member (unless prevented by ill health) of the RAMI Community who has dedicated a substantial portion of his/her life towards the enhancement of the local music scene. Recipients need not be RAMI members; but must currently live in the Rockford Area (within 50-mile radius of State and Main) and have a minimum of twenty years total residence and performance in said area. Nominees will be evaluated not only on their excellence or achievement within their own field but also for showing leadership within the community to promote broader access to, participation in and understanding of music and the arts.
No more than two (2) Lifetime Achievement Awards will be presented for any eligibility year.
Only RAMI members may nominate for these categories.
All donations help support RAMI scholarships, music education programs, and RAMI sponsored events.
