Summer Institute for Piano and Strings (SIPS)


Students entering grades 8 through 12 are invited to join us June 19 through June 23 for our 2017 Summer Institute for Piano and Strings (SIPS), where advanced pianists and string players in Southeast Idaho have the opportunity to rehearse, coach, and perform chamber music designed for strings and piano.

Registration and check­in will take place Sunday, June 18.

Activities will take place from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day, including solo and collaborative performance study, music classes, ensembles, and various other group activities.

A Jr. String option is available for the younger string student with at least one year of playing experience. Students will also have the option to take private lessons for an additional fee.

The number of attendees is limited, so early application is encouraged to ensure admittance.

Tuition includes lunches for all students, even those who are not boarding, in order to create a safe and inclusive environment for all students.

Participants can choose to stay in our new Rendezvous dorms and eat all meals on campus. This is recommended especially for students who live 30 or more miles away from Pocatello. Students who choose to stay at home will still eat lunch on campus and participate in all camp activities.

Students will be joined by experienced camp counselors in the dorms, at meals, and during recreational activities.

The application process is specific for piano or strings, and is explained under each respective category.
