Every summer at the Pacific Music Institute is an opportunity to make music, friends, and develop skills that will extend far beyond the rehearsal room or concert hall.

A PMI summer includes a comprehensive music curriculum—sectionals, rehearsals, masterclasses performances, and more. In Summer 2022, we enter the fourth year of our OLA (Orchestral Learning Alliance) program, featuring Artist Faculty and Teaching Fellows from the National Orchestral Institute+Festival.

PMI has programs for all instruments that play in a symphony orchestra, wind ensemble, or jazz ensemble. All sessions will be held at the Hawaii Convention Center.
