Conn Selmer Institute

June 11-14, 2023

Conn Selmer Institute (CSI) is a three-and-a-half day professional development conference for college students, directors, and music program leaders. Our world-class faculty leads a curriculum with specialized tracks focusing on college students, new music educators, middle school directors, high school directors including marching arts, and music administrators. We love the traditions and personal connections made in-person at Bethel University and are thrilled with the success of the virtual option to attend as well - the best of both worlds!
