Early Music at CAMMAC

Anyone who loves Early Music can benefit from the Early Music Week at CAMMAC I have attended it many times. Unfortunately, I will not be there this year. I have had the privilege of participating in classes taught by the likes of Gilles Plante, Francis Colpron, Matthias Maute, Sophie Larivière, Natalie Michaud, Sylvain Bergeron, Guy Ross, Kiya Tabassian...... It is a joy to make music in such magnificent surroundings. Imagine, being in the woods in a practice hut with windows on 3 sides. What can be better? music and nature combined!

And then there are the concerts. A few evenings each week we are treated to concerts by the staff members. Memorable concers all, with not only the musicians mentioned above, but I have also had joy of hearing the best that Montreal and beyond has to offer - Daniel Taylor, Suzie LeBlanc, Margaret Little, Susie Napper, Bruce Haynes, Genevieve Soly, Laura Pudwell and so many more. All held in an intimate venue. This is chambre music at its best.

Someone sent this on to me so I'll add their plug:
