Frequently Asked Questions

We cannot wait to see you in June - and we want to make sure you have all the information you need. Our most frequently asked questions (FAQs) are listed below with answers, but if you don't see your answer here, please reach out to Beth Horton at


Registration for CSI 2023 for in-person attendees includes access to live clinics and all meals are included. Through the use of our event platform, ALL attendees have access to session live streams, access to all available session replays for 90-days, communication with all registrants and clinicians, concerts, and a tour of the Conn Selmer Elkhart facilities.

Virtual sessions will be live-streamed, so you are able to join the live session in progress, interact with session attendees and faculty via the live chat. Replays will also be available if there are sessions that are offered during times you are unavailable.

We are using the platform Socio to build an app specifically for the event that will allow you to connect with other attendees, faculty and sponsors via chat and video rooms. Our goal is to make this as connected as possible to the live experience for those unable to attend in-person.

You can download the app here.

There will be a table situated in the entrance rotunda of the auditorium for you to check in and pick up your name badge. Check-in is available on Saturday, June 10th from 12 PM through 8 PM and Sunday beginning at 8 AM. (#21 on the campus map)

For in-person attendees to CSI 2023: breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided on Sunday-Tuesday, and breakfast is provided on Wednesday as well.

Through our arrangement with Bethel University’s dining program, there should be no need for you to bring meals with you, but you are more than welcome to bring additional snacks. If staying on campus, please note that there will not be refrigeration available to you.

Attire for the event is business casual. If attending the factory tour, closed toe and closed heel shoes are required for your safety. The weather forecast for the event is predicting temperatures in the 70's and 80's with a chance of rain. You will do a fair amount of walking, so make sure you have appropriate footwear. If staying in the dorms, bed linens, pillow, a towel, and a washcloth will be provided. You will need to bring your own toiletries, including hand soap for the bathrooms. Remember to bring your instrument for the reading ensemble. If you sign-up to request usage of a large instrument, you will still need to bring your own mouthpiece. We also ask that all percussionists playing in the ensembles bring their own sticks/mallets.
