The Ithaca College Summer Music Academy recently celebrated the successful conclusion of its second year. Students hailed from over 20 states and four countries, including Japan, China, Thailand, and Canada. Enrolling 320 participants this year, a 60% increase over 2011, the SMA employed over 100 counselors, faculty, and staff, including 30 current IC faculty members, 34 School of Music alumni, and 21 current IC students.
Thomas Kline, Director of Music Admission and Preparatory Programs, comments on the focus of the program, "Our goal for the Summer Music Academy is to provide a preeminent summer music experience, which fosters musical and personal growth at the highest level. For the High School Division specifically, young adults have the opportunity to experience what life is like as an Ithaca College School of Music student."
