Join world-class faculty and musicians from around the world in an intensive summer festival that will change your life! MSO’s celebrated week-long string camp for elementary through college-age serves many students from the metro, state and region (including beyond Mississippi and from South America). Faculty from all over the country teach campers in several age-appropriate ensembles, and through masterclasses and recitals. A scholarship group is also formed from our most talented young Jackson Public Schools students. Camp is typically held on the Millsaps College campus.



Our mission is to provide all POI participants with an intensive, exciting and inspiring program that will generate artistic growth and cultural enrichment for all involved. POI is a life-changing experience with repercussions beyond the musical realm.
