The world has changed a lot over the past few months, but CAMMAC’s mission remains to provide ways for our members to come together to make music, and to be able to learn from our skilled teaching staff of professional musicians.
We’ve prepared a wide array of courses for you to choose from: private and semi-private classes for all levels of players and singers, workshops, conferences, group classes, masterclasses and more, given by many of your favourite teachers, and some new faces too!
We’ll also be offering a fun series of free online get-togethers, including Cabaret and Chat events, Virtual Cocktail evenings, and more. You will also be treated to the quintessential CAMMAC happening, “Cheese with Francis Colpron”!
Please join us and help make CAMMAC’s first foray into the world of virtual music education a great success!
A MESSAGE FROM CAMMAC’S ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, GUYLAINE LEMAIRE
While the current crisis confronts us with major challenges at the CAMMAC Music Centre, there are many opportunities to continue to promote CAMMAC and work towards our mission and objectives. Our goal is that this virtual online program will become part of the educational and pedagogical offer of CAMMAC Music Centre.
We believe that this is an initiative that could continue well after the pandemic, as it allows CAMMAC to stay in touch with our members, and also helps our participants to prepare well for the programs at the Music Centre, once we re-open. It is also a commitment to our wonderful teachers during these uncertain times and beyond. So, this is a very positive and exciting project!
And of course, there is also an opportunity for CAMMAC to increase its visibility with the potential of attracting participants from all over Canada and around the world.
I hope you will join us for some of the activities, courses and workshops that will be offered in the coming weeks and beyond,
Please note that you must hold a valid CAMMAC membership to take part in the classes and free activities.

This program has been made possible, in part, with support from ACMP.
In the summer of 2019, the CAMMAC Music Centre was fortunate to be the recipient of a grant from the ACMP in support of our Chamber Music program for Week 4. In 2020, we were hoping to receive a grant to support our chamber music program for Week 3 2020, from July 12 -19.
This summer, ACMP is providing special COVID-19 grants to help out with cancelled programming. CAMMAC is very grateful to be the recipient of one of those grants to support our virtual program and to help us pay fees to our teachers. It is our hope that all of our participants will join in some of our offered classes and workshops and will be in fine shape when we are next able to welcome them at the Music Centre.
The CAMMAC Music Centre’s programming, in particular our chamber music workshops, are very much in line with the ACMP’s goals. Chamber music is offered during each of our seven weeks of summer programming, and one of those weeks offers a week-long program dedicated to chamber music, for various levels of playing – from participants who wish to rekindle their passion and dedication for chamber music to the more advanced players who are looking to expand their knowledge of the repertoire and hone in their skills. In our intensive program, we offer longer periods of coaching each day, rehearsals in a dedicated studio and guided workshops, and participants have the opportunity to play in concerts if they wish at the end of the workshop. The joy of making music together while receiving top professional expertise is a priority. All participants end their week having made new connections with other players and have deepened their connections with previous colleagues.
