Summer Programs

The Conservatory of Music offers a series of music workshops and institutes during the summer months. Our programs are open to high school and college students, teachers, and accomplished amateurs with exceptional opportunities who want to develop performance and teaching skills, expand repertoire, build technique, and generally enjoy music-making and performances in a supportive and collegial atmosphere.

Participants study with members of the conservatory’s distinguished resident and guest faculty and have full use of the conservatory’s exceptional facilities. Participants may also be eligible to receive college credit.
