The campus and community will see an increase in activity and more visitors this summer as Conference Services welcomes several new groups as well as returning clients.
During June and July, Oberlin will host the gatherings of OMD Summer Institute, Youngseekers Mountaintop Youth Camp, Foresight Leadership and Sustainability Initiative, and Oberlin Dance Intensive. Returning groups include the Ohio Scottish Arts School, Socialist Workers Party, and US Performing Arts Camp.
The conservatory will host the Milt Hinton Institute for Studio Bass, the Cooper International Competition and Cooper Piano Festival, the Choral Conducting Institute, the Baroque Performance Institute, and the Sonic Arts Workshop.
“Showcasing Oberlin as an attractive summer destination for conferences, visitors, and students is an important, shared priority of the college and town,” says President Marvin Krislov. “Recent successes, such as the Oberlin Summer Theater Festival, and the Thomas and Evon Cooper International Competition for pianists and string players, have brought new vitality and a significant economic boost to Oberlin. We will continue working together to make Oberlin an even more appealing summer destination.”
