CAMMAC Music Centre 2013 Choral Highlights
Event Date: May 17, 2013-May 20, 2013
Posted: April 18, 2013
Canadian Amateur Musicians/ Musiciens amateurs du Canada (CAMMAC) invites you to enjoy a musical vacation
in the beautiful Quebec Laurentians, midway between Montreal and Ottawa. Situated on the shore of Lake MacDonald,
the music camp offers a wide variety courses for adults, teens and children of all skill levels in a friendly, non-competitive and bilingual (French and English)
atmosphere. While each week has a special focus, all weeks offer the opportunity to sing a major work and take at least two other choral classes, in addition to practicing yourinstrument, taking yoga, drawing or dance, and enjoying the concerts given by our outstanding faculty.
Our 2013 choral highlights are:
