What is ISYM?

Illinois Summer Youth Music brings over 1000 students and 150 faculty and staff together each summer for three weeks of intense music-making. With over 20 different programs, the comprehensive list of offerings include large ensembles at both senior and junior high levels, as well as the more rigorous offerings of the Pre-College division. From the developing junior high student to the aspiring professional, there is a program to challenge and nurture your talents.

Hosted on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, students get to experience a taste of the college life at a Big Ten university. Students live and eat in a university dormitory located close to the School of Music and the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts.

There are numerous evening activities throughout the week including outstanding performances and plenty of recreation.

Instruction is led by University faculty and leading music educators from across the country, and includes graduate students, practicing teachers and professional experts. Even the counseling staff draws from the best of the experienced educators of the region.

Most programs include a choice of elective class to round out the educational experience. Be sure to check out the descriptions for each of the programs you are interested in applying for.
