ICSMA 2021 Planning Update

We are hard at work modifying SMA to provide a meaningful, musical experience at Ithaca College while protecting the health and safety of our students, staff, and families.

Here are some of the changes that will be implemented for our 2021 season:

  • Smaller ensemble and performance cohorts;
  • Adherence to social distancing and mask-wearing policies;
  • Staggered scheduling designed to de-densify spaces being utilized;
  • Weekly COVID-19 testing administered in conjunction with the Cayuga Medical Center;
  • Dedicated, on-call nursing staff with COVID-19 training; and
  • A camp-wide video project that will include in-person participants.

Important Note: Our in-person programming will only be available to campers who can be picked up by a family member/guardian within a 10-hour drive (not using public transit). In the event that a COVID-19 case is identified, the family must be able to provide transportation home on the day of.
