Minicammac (by Lucie Bouchard)

Do you know Minicammac, son of Barbacammac, the scary pirate? Or Cammacoucou, the extra-terrestrial? Have you ever seen Patrica Abbott, our artistic director, make a remarkable entrance in the Lucy Concert Hall, in a canoe, while wearing a life jacket, dressed as Elisabeth II, the Queen of England?

March Break 2016 at CAMMAC: a great musical and family feast! (by Michelle Lemay)

Designed for music-loving children, teenagers, grandparents, and parents of any level, this week of musical fiesta was a delightful and fulfilling one for us all. After we were greeted as princes at the CAMMAC Music Centre, along the shore of Lake MacDonald, our music masters François Ouimet and Anne Massicotte orchestrated for us a variety of music workshops exploring the magic of sounds and music parts in multicoloured scales.

My week at CAMMAC (by Andrée Pinsonneault)

When I took part in the Gala de l’Amitié hosted by the « L’amitié n’a pas d’âge » (Friendship Knows No Age) association on May 29, 2015, I had the great surprise of winning the event’s attendance prize: a gift certificate for a family of four, offered by the CAMMAC Music Centre! This package included a whole week for two grandparents and two children for March Break, from February 28 to March 4, 2016.

A few words… (by Vincent Lauzer)

I’m delighted to have been named CAMMAC’s 2016 spokesperson. I taught for the first time at the CAMMAC Music Centre in 2009, and I have to say that, from the very first summer, I found it a transformative experience. Nowhere else have I found this feeling of community, generational mix, open friendliness, and all participants’ consuming passion for music. I love teaching there, and sharing my passion for the recorder and music.

Why I come back to CAMMAC… (by David Ellis)

CAMMAC is certainly a special place, a place that in my experience has no comparison. It is a place where music is of the essence, a place where a person, an adult, an adolescent, or a child can discover music, appreciate music, believe in music and share their love of great music with others. This is not a place where one competes with others, where some are treated better than others, where faculty are better than the students. No, here all are participants, whether you are playing music for the first time or you are a seasoned professional performer, all are equal when it comes to music and the appreciation of all it has to offer.
