WHAT IS OCM SUMMER INSTITUTE (OCMI)?
OCMI is the Conservatory’s week-long summer music camp for young musicians to immerse themselves in rigorous study of their instrument & make music with peers from across the country. The curriculum is tailored to all levels of ability from beginning to advanced students. We bring in guest-artists from around the world to create the most vibrant & fun experience possible!
WHO IS IT FOR?
Strings, piano, and voice students ages 5 to seniors in high school!
WHAT WILL I DO THERE?
Each day is packed full of classes and private instruction, and wraps up with a concert. You’ll perform on some of them and learn from others!

Who is ready for summer?! We 100% are! Here at the Omaha Conservatory, we’ve been actively monitoring the coronavirus situation and we are sending regular updates to our community. We are closely following state and local health guidelines and will notify camp registrants of any changes to plans for OCMI. A few important things of note:
- We have extended our payment due date for camp registrants to July 1 in consideration of health and financial impacts of COVID-19.
- There’s been some major changes to the format of half-day camp. Tuition has dropped in order to accommodate families in our rapidly changing environment with consideration to financial challenges.
Ambassador fund aid is still available for those who need help with the cost of camp!
