Founded in 2011, the Rosamunde Summer Music Academy has firmly established its place as one of Canada’s excellent summer programs for string players of all ages and skill levels! Rosamunde offers a tailored, high caliber musical learning experience in an idyllic and nurturing setting.
Our 10-day Core Program, held this summer from August 16-25, is designed in accordance with a holistic philosophy that seeks to develop physical and mental well-being as well as musical and technical abilities and ensemble skills, and is geared towards serious music students aged 10-24.
We also offer shorter programs for beginners (Mini Rosie program, August 21-25) and adult amateur musicians (Rosamundiade program, August 20-25).
This year’s faculty is comprised of outstanding performers and pedagogues from across North America (and one from Berlin!), hand-picked for their dedication to a supportive yet exacting teaching style. To encourage a cultivation of the connection between mind and body in our students, drop-in yoga classes round out the daily schedule.
The Rosamunde Festival (August 18-20), now in its 4th year, features our internationally-renowned faculty in three concerts of solo and chamber music repertoire. The significant number of student recitals that we offer also comprises a vital part of the Festival. All concerts are open to the public and free for Rosamunde participants.
