The Maryland Summer Institute for the Creative and Performing Arts (MSICPA) was founded in 1976 with the aim of helping young artists bridge the gap between academic training and the competitive professional world. The organization sponsored career development programs such as the National Orchestral Institute, and yearly festivals including the University of Maryland International Piano and Festival, the International Marion Anderson Vocal Arts Competition, and the Leonard Rose International Cello Competition. The MSICPA continued until 1998, and served as the predecessor for the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. The MSICPA Collection contains administrative paperwork, correspondence, photographs, programs, clippings, and scores, spanning the years 1971 to 1999.
