Founded in 2011, the Rosamunde Summer Music Academy is Canada’s most exciting new program 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 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 from ages 10-24. We also offer shorter programs for beginners (Mini Rosie) and adult amateur musicians (Rosamundiade).
This year’s faculty is comprised of outstanding performers from across North America who have been hand-picked for their dedication to a supportive yet exacting teaching style. To encourage you to cultivate the connection between mind and body in your musical study, drop-in yoga classes round out the daily schedule.
The Rosamunde Music Festival (August 14-16), now in its 2nd year, features our internationally renowned faculty in 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.
Co-Artistic Directors Yuri Hooker and Elation Pauls are excited to present the 2015 season! We will be accepting applications from February 1-April 30 for this summer’s academy.
