Parent Info 

We were on the cusp of opening registration for the Kamloops Interior Summer School of Music (KISSM) on March 1st as normal, but COVID is complicating a few of our plans so we are making the difficult decision to postpone registration.  While we are still developing what our summer program(s) will look like, we are sure about one thing... we can't wait to see all of the dedicated and talented young musicians from our community this July!

Our summer program gives parents opportunities to witness their children’s progress throughout the camp during lunch-hour concerts, at community outreach concerts, along with two finale showcase concerts in the third week of camp. We also host faculty recitals where the public is welcome, and these are always outstanding!


KISSM is committed to establishing and maintaining a safe, inclusive, equitable, and welcoming learning and working environment for all students, teachers, and volunteers within our program.
