Intercultural Institute

Young musicians preparing for a contemporary career in any specialty can allow their curiosity and imaginations to roam through a steady diet of monthly workshops, performances, festivals, conferences, and residencies throughout the academic year by guest scholars and artists in musical traditions from every continent.

Many ICI guests find their way into the regular academic classes and ensembles of departments from Music History and Music Theory to Contemporary Improvisation, Jazz, Composition, Strings, Percussion and more. All of these events are open without restriction to both the Conservatory community and the general public, free of charge.
