The National Symphony Orchestra Summer Music Institute will take place from July 2 to July 30.
Every summer, approximately 60 students (ages 15-20) from all over the nation meet in Washington, D.C., to attend the Kennedy Center/National Symphony Orchestra's Summer Music Institute (SMI). The Institute offers four weeks of private lessons, rehearsals, coaching by National Symphony Orchestra members, classes, and lectures to prepare aspiring musicians for their futures in music.
The deadline for application is January 27, 2012. In the past, SMI Chair Leon Kuehner submitted Iowa's selections to SMI. This year, applicants will apply online directly to the Kennedy Center.
For more information and links to the application and financial forms, go to the IAAE website.
