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.
