Important Update about Thanksgiving at the CAMMAC Music Centre

Many thanks to those members who registered for the Thanksgiving week and weekend programs at the CAMMAC Music Centre.

Unfortunately, we are still below the number of people that we need to break even financially and for the events to be successful musically.

Therefore, members of the Executive Committee have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel both programs.

Those who have registered will have several options for how we handle the money that they have paid to date:

  • the money can be left with CAMMAC and applied to a future registration;
  • a refund can be issued;
  • the money could be converted to a donation to CAMMAC; or
  • Some combination of these options.

Office staff will contact each of the registrants in the coming days, so please give some thought before then and decide which option you would prefer.

In order to understand the reasons why registrations were so low, we plan to distribute a survey to members, particularly those who have attended Thanksgiving events in the past but did not register this year.

We look forward to more normal and well attended events at the Music Centre in 2023.

In the meantime, our virtual programming continues until we can get together and once again make music in person.

From Monday October 3 to Monday October 10, come celebrate fall and the harvest season at the CAMMAC Music Centre!

Treat yourself to the perfect fall getaway, immersed in music and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Laurentians.

Come with family, among friends or on your own, and enjoy a multitude of musical, artistic, sports and outdoor activities for all ages. Whether you want to improve your musical skills or you’re just starting out, CAMMAC’s Thanksgiving week program is sure to please you.

Choose between 3 options for your stay:

WEEKDAY PACKAGE:
Monday October 3 to Thursday October 6 – Adults only program (4 days / 3 nights)

WEEKEND PACKAGE:
Friday October 7 to Monday October 10
– Adults & Kids program (4 days / 3 nights)

MONDAY OCTOBER 3 TO THURSDAY OCTOBER 6

A new addition in 2021, back in 2022 by popular demand!

The early week program offers a relaxed schedule that will allow you to make music while enjoying nature and the beautiful site of the CAMMAC Music Center.

 

A multi-faceted program:

First, three recorder specialists will teach an intensive for recorder enthusiasts (classes available for all levels). Then, a madrigal choir, vocal coaching and chamber music will be offered. Finally, active listening, percussion, dance and yoga will complete your already busy days. Additional activities will also include a campfire, a cabaret evening, and a concert by our teachers.
