A MESSAGE TO THE CAMMAC COMMUNITY REGARDING THE OUTBREAK OF COVID-19 AT THE MUSIC CENTRE:

Dear members of the CAMMAC community,

We are deeply sorry to announce that a COVID outbreak at the Music Centre has led us to decide, this Monday afternoon, to close the Centre until July 31. Those who have made a reservation for week 5 will receive an appropriate message from the administration regarding the refund of their deposit. Week 4 participants have been offered a refund for their entire stay.

The pandemic has forced us to make this painful but necessary decision in the interest of the health of our members and staff. In preparation for the first week, we followed all the recommendations of the Public Health Department and the Quebec Camp Association in terms of preventive measures. Nevertheless, a few scattered cases occurred in weeks 2 and 3, but these remained isolated. As soon as the first case emerged, we increased sanitary precautions beyond the recommendations of the Quebec Public Health Department, and we remained hopeful that contamination would be avoided in subsequent weeks.

Unfortunately, this has not been the case and the number of cases reported since Monday morning (July 18th) has forced us to close the Music Centre for the duration of the isolation period recommended by Public Health. We will resume our activities after the recommended period, with a thoroughly cleaned space and with healthy staff. Activities for week 6, and the concert scheduled for July 31st with the Kate Wyatt Jazz Quartet will take place as well.

Some of you may wonder if it is wise to even think about resuming camp activities, but we can assure you that we are taking into account the desires of many who to experience music at CAMMAC “as it was before” in the context of each individual’s level of risk tolerance, while doing everything in our power to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all.

We hope to see you back at CAMMAC soon.

Yours sincerely,

Cynthia Bonenfant, Executive Director
Guylaine Lemaire, Artistic Director
Jean-Charles Grégoire, Chairperson – CAMMAC Board of Directors

THE CAMMAC MUSIC CENTRE: UNIQUE IN CANADA

CAMMAC’s vision and core values are an example of the kind of society we wish for in Canada: people living a happy, healthy and productive life that leads to personal growth and a sense of belonging and in a bilingual environment that builds bridges between our cultures. This transcends age, language and cultural differences and citizens who practice the arts bring an invaluable contribution to their communities.

To do this, CAMMAC only hires highly skilled professionals to guide amateur musicians and students of all ages and levels in their musical learning experience. To quote the Canada Council’s CEO Simon Brault in his book, “La Culture avec un grand C”, this is an example of a “participative culture”.

Many of Canada’s top musicians have studied at CAMMAC, including Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Daniel Taylor, Timothy Hutchins and Gregory Charles to name a few. Orchestras across Canada have musicians who have studied at CAMMAC. CAMMAC is a vital part of Canada’s music ecosystem. CAMMAC participants are highly representative of the core audiences for professional classical music concerts – the very people that make it possible for classical music to survive in today’s world.
