CAMP LOCATION: The International Music Institute and Festival USA takes place at Mount Saint Mary's University, an hour from Baltimore or Washington D.C. and 15 minutes from historic Gettysburg. This scenic and safe campus is located in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

CAMP FACILITIES: All events and activities take place on the beautiful Mount St. Mary's University campus, which includes three performance halls. Students reside in single, air-conditioned rooms in a newly-built residence hall and enjoy meals prepared in the campus dining hall.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The International Music Institute and Festival USA offers a stimulating and nurturing environment where each aspect of the individual experience is given careful thought and attention. Our dynamic summer music festival is for violin, viola, cello, and piano. The short but intense 10-day program is filled with private lessons, chamber music, and interdisciplinary seminars and workshops, culminating with solo and chamber ensemble performances. Enrollment is limited, facilitating an intense musical experience as well as lasting friendships.

World-class faculty include such renowned musicians as Jonathan Carney (concertmaster of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra), Brian Ganz (faculty at Peabody Conservatory, winner of Silver Medal at Queen Elizabeth Competition), Chin Kim (faculty at Mannes School of Music, winner of Silver Medal at Queen Elizabeth Competition), Blanka Bednarz (faculty at Dickinson College), Cecylia Barczyk (faculty at Towson University), and many others dedicated to assisting the next generation of musicians achieve their musical and personal goals. Students will have opportunities to work with each of these faculty members, whether it be in private lessons, chamber music coachings, or master classes. They will eat in the same dining hall, be available for answering questions, and perform recitals at IMIF. IMIF is exceptionally international: each year we welcome young musicians from around the world. Recent participants have joined us from Iceland, Estonia, Norway, Germany, Russia, Israel, Mexico, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Argentina, and Canada (as well as across the USA).

In addition to our core curriculum of solo and chamber music, we include interdisciplinary arts experiences in which participants experience a holistic approach to music education. They learn how to take care of their bodies and prevent performance injuries, feel more confident and become more expressive on stage, and practice more effectively. Workshop topics include: Performance Psychology, Introduction to Dance and Movement, Ensemble and Collaborative Skills (theatre workshop), Improvisation, Careers in Music, Stage Presence, and Effective Practicing.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We are able to offer partial-tuition scholarships. Applicants are also encouraged to seek out sponsors in their communities, e.g. schools, arts or civic organizations, private donors, and local businesses. Past participants have successfully found support to pay tuition and travel expenses through grants, donations from family and friends, and benefit concerts.

OTHER CAMP INFO: One of the really unique aspects of this summer music course is the five-day concert tour that follows the institute. Selected participants who apply for this tour are given the opportunity to perform concerts in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Washington D.C. Participants stay with local families, and enjoy receptions, sight-seeing, and shopping.

2017 Institute: July 7-16
Concert tour: July 16-19

The total all-inclusive tuition is $1860 (USD).
