Founded in 2011, the Rosamunde Summer Music Academy is one of Canada’s best summer programs for string players of all ages and skill levels!
Rosamunde offers a tailored, high-calibre musical learning experience in an idyllic and nurturing setting. Our 10-day Core Program, geared towards serious music students aged 10-24, 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. We also offer shorter programs for beginners and adult amateur musicians.
Each year's faculty is comprised of outstanding performers and pedagogues, hand-picked for their dedication to a supportive yet exacting teaching style.
We're able to offer a range of scholarships and bursaries through the generous support of our sponsors and donors.
This year's Rosamunde Festival (August 21-23, 2020), "Czech Mates: Rematch," 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.
