SMI 2020 Camps - Cancelled

Dear campers and families:

We have been thoughtfully considering and planning for how COVID-19 will impact our upcoming Summer Music Institute camps. Many camps throughout the nation have had to make the difficult decision to cancel their 2020 summer music camp season. This is due to the unknown circumstances in the foreseeable future, but also for the healthy and safety of all campers and staff.

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the SMI 2020 camp season. If you have already registered for 2020, we will be issuing you a full refund. Please be patient with this process.

We will miss you all this summer, but please know that we will be even more excited and invigorated to welcome you all back again to the SMI 2021!

The 2021 camp dates are:

  • Rocky Camp & Steel Band Camp: June 7-11, 2021
  • Choir & Jazz Camps: June 13-18, 2021
  • Band & Marching Band Leadership Camps: June 20-25, 2021

All the best,

Dr. Brian J. Winnie
Director, Summer Music Institute
