All new for this year the BobcaygeonMusicCouncil will be hosting a summer brass workshop (day-camp), July 4 – July 8. This workshop is geared toward students from the elementary to the high school level who already have some experience with a brass instrument.

 

The Trillium Brass Quintet (www.trilliumbrass.com) will be artists in residence for the week. TBQ will conduct all of the workshops and lessons as well as performing informally throughout the week. Come experience an inspiring and exciting week of brass playing!

 

The camp will run from 9am-4:30pm Monday, July 4 through Thursday, July 7th, and will culminate in a student performance Friday, July 8th at noon. All activities will take place at Kawartha Settlers’ Village.

 

All students will play in the large ensemble, a massed brass band. Small ensembles will be formed with students of like abilities together. Repertoire will be chosen to fit individual students and all ensembles will perform in the final concert.

 

Students will have time to get outside, meet each other, stretch and relax. We will provide a variety of supervised activities for the students during two breaks each day, i.e. yoga, soccer coaching, arts and crafts, etc.

 

Each student will bring their own garbage-less lunch, snacks and drinks.

 

Cost: $100/student – financial support may be available through the BobcaygeonMusicCouncil.

Registration Deadline: June 17, 2011.
