“The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.”
Plato, The Republic, bk. I

The students you are hearing at the 2015 IIYM Summer Music Academy are taking their own first steps to their future lives. Some of them, without a doubt, will be the famous concert artists of the future, and Lawrence audience members will be able to say, with pride, “we heard them here first.”

Providing world-class educational opportunities for the planet’s finest young musicians is not easy. It takes money to hire the world’s finest teachers and judges, and provide a safe learning environment. Some of most talented students are also the most in need, requiring much scholarship help.

Donations to the IIYM are tax-deductible, and help draw the best of the world’s musicians to Lawrence every summer.

Please join us as we build the world’s premier musical event for pre-college musicians.
