Ravinia's Steans Music Institute (RSMI)
RSMI Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary
Ravinia's Steans Music Institute is Ravinia's summer conservatory, bringing together each summer talented young musicians from around the world to make music together under the supervision of an internationally renowned faculty. Through its three programs—jazz, piano and strings, and singers—young artists at Ravinia's Steans Music Institute attend master classes given by musical luminaries, have daily coaching with the institute's faculty, and present recitals offered as part of Ravinia Festival's summer programming. Many of the institute's alumni have gone on to achieve notable successes in solo performance, opera, jazz, and chamber music.
