Meet the winners of YAMawards 2015!

The winners of the Young Audiences Music Awards 2015 have been chosen and were announced on September 14th during JMI's YAMsession event at the Mimara Museum in Zagreb, Croatia. The YAMawards honour the best music productions in the world for young audiences.

The Turtle Project (music and story by Jorge Salgueido and interpreted by the Portoguese Navy Symphonic Band) won the Public Choice Award. This lively large-scale production manages to present newly composed music for a full symphonic wind orchestra. Aimed for children 6-11 years old it certainly brings out bucket loads of enthusiasm and joy. The musicians, conductor and narrator all put on a wonderful performance and on what's more, the children in the audience have all been well prepared to take part in movements and singing during the show creating a strong ownership and connection with the production.
