May 2020: An update from the Director of MSM Summer

Dear MSM Summer Families,

We hope you and your family are healthy during this challenging time.

In order to deliver the best and safest program for our students and faculty, MSM Summer 2020 will be remote learning.  Although we are disappointed that we won’t be together in person, we are excited to offer many new classes and online experiences for our talented student population!

In order to provide an optimal learning experience, MSM Summer 2020 will be expanded to five weeks (July 6- August 7) for all participants so that students spend fewer daily hours in front of a screen and will have time to practice and engage in other personal activities. Classes will be available from 9:30am-6:30pm so that students in different time zones can participate. Click​ here for our list of course offerings!

All participants will be invited to ongoing virtual special events, performance opportunities, and social activities at no charge.

As always, we look forward to a musical summer!

Rebecca Charnow
Director, MSM Summer
