  • Google Calendar ICS

Seminar is a high school summer music camp designed to serve as an enjoyable, pre-college experience for serious, young musicians. It is organized to promote artistic, social, recreational and cultural interaction among the participating young artists. It simultaneously serves as a vital experience for the students as well as a valid artistic representation of the School of Music at Western Michigan University. School of Music Director of Concerts Kevin West has served as the administrative director of Seminar since 2010, having served as the registrar from 1995 to 2009. School of Music Concerts Assistant George Brown is the program's registrar.

Western Michigan University will observe the 68th consecutive year of its celebrated high school summer music camp in 2019. All sessions are held on the University's main campus in Kalamazoo where some 120 students from seven areas of study—brass, woodwind, percussion, string, vocal/choral, keyboard and composition—gather each summer to pursue and develop their interests in music.

Hawaii Youth Symphony Pacific Music Institute

Every summer at PMI is an opportunity to make music, make friends, and develop skills that will extend far beyond the rehearsal room or concert hall. The heart of the 2019 program are our Instrumental Workshops, flexibly designed for students of all levels to hone the technical and expressive skills needed to advance to the next level.

A PMI summer includes a comprehensive music curriculum—private lessons, chamber music, master classes, technical workshops, performances, and more. This summer, we debut the Festival Orchestra, a professional-level faculty ensemble, along with our brand-new OLA (Orchestral Learning Alliance) program, featuring Artist Faculty from the National Orchestral Institute+Festival.

PMI has programs for all instruments that play in a symphony orchestra, symphonic band, or jazz ensemble. Our programs range in duration from five days to two weeks. Depending on your area of study and audition, you may be eligible for more than one program, and students may apply for more than one program with the same audition.

At PMI, we believe that music is life and our lives are music. We hope you can join us in Honolulu for what will be an epic summer!
