We seek individuals who can contribute to future fundraising efforts. The I.C.S. is an independent program of the non-profit organization Icicle Creek Music Center, and an educational outreach program of Central Washington University. Donations are tax-deductible.

ICS Reporters/Writers/Reviewers

The I.C.S. needs more members writing about what is happening in their particular area of activity or interest--documenting concerts, masterclasses, new publications, new music and events.
