Ravinia's Steans Music Institute (RSMI)
Ravinia’s Summer Conservatory
Concert halls, opera houses, orchestras, chamber ensembles, and headlines are filled with these and many more alumni of Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute, the summer conservatory at America’s oldest summer music festival. Each season, talented young musicians from around the world come together at RSMI to make music with an internationally renowned performing faculty. Through the institute’s three programs—jazz, piano and strings, and singers—these young artists give performances as part of Ravinia’s summer main-stage programming as well as participate in master classes led by musical luminaries and daily solo and ensemble coaching with the faculty.
