International Violinists in Schools (IVIS)
One of the most popular educational programs of the Competition is International Violinists in Schools. This program affords elementary, middle and high school students the opportunity to meet one of the Competition’s bright young stars in their own schools. Players visit schools around Central Indiana to present “informances” – brief discussions of their experiences as emerging professionals, plus demonstrations of their playing. During the 2014 Competition, more than 40 presentations were given to enthusiastic school children thanks to this program.

Come to the Competition
Another program – Come to the Competition – is designed to give small groups of interested students an up-close and personal look at the Competition. Schools throughout Central Indiana can arrange field trips to the Preliminaries and Semi-Finals held in downtown Indianapolis at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center. The Competition provides low cost tickets and reserved seating, allowing hundreds of school children to experience the thrill of live performances.
