We help church music to flourish.

How? For more than 50 years, the Summer Institute of Church Music (SICM) has offered a 1-week intensive and unique professional development conference in early July. This successful program has continued throughout the pandemic online, and now is expanding to two onsite sessions, as well as online, in 2022.
