This dynamic program meets twice weekly, Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 3:00 – 7:00 pm. This year, SMS runs from June 26 through July 26 (No SMS on Wed, July 4th). Students are immersed in the traditions of classical music making with an emphasis on chamber music and orchestral playing. Students of all ages and levels are welcome in this program.

Musicians participate in chamber ensembles, orchestra, music theory, private lessons, sectionals, sports and an arts program. Faculty artists present a weekly recital for the students that is open to family and friends.
