“I believe that CSIC can make a huge impact in the lives of high school music students. These commissions are just one way that CSIC is working to make a difference,” said Katy Luo, CSIC’s Program Director. If schools are interested in learning more about our commission program or would like to sign up for one, the first step is to visit the CSIC website and submit a registration form.


Composers and Schools in Concert (CSIC) launched in 2011. Led by CSIC Director Lisa Oman, it is the only organization in the United States dedicated to providing high school age students the opportunity to work with a professional composer. Through music collaborations, students are offered invaluable insight into the career of composition.
