CSI Covid-19 Mitigation Statement:

Based on the information available to us at this time, we are planning to have a "mask optional" protocol for participants and their families; participants are free to continue wearing a mask if they are more comfortable doing so. We will keep you informed of any changes to these protocols. To ensure the health and safety of our CSI community, we will continue to vigilantly monitor Covid statistics and add additional requirements if conditions worsen. CSI Covid policies are dependent on policies at Trinity International University, as well as other relevant state and local guidance, at the time of the Institute.


REGISTRATION for Student Programs and Teacher Training is OPEN! 

     Please use links found under CSI Registration Forms & Downloads to reach the appropriate form.



We wish for you and your family to continue to remain safe and healthy this summer and to continue keeping music a daily part of your routine.


We're looking forward to you joining us again in-person this summer!
