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 calibre 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 aged 10-24. We also offer shorter programs for beginners and adult amateur musicians.
There is a significant increase in the amount of scholarships (merit-based, these include the Mary & Gerald Stanick Viola Scholarship) and bursaries (based on financial need) available for the 2019 session. If you're a student from out of town and need a place to stay, on campus accommodations are available, as well as billeting options with our friendly Winnipeg host families.
This year’s faculty is comprised of outstanding performers and pedagogues, hand-picked for their dedication to a supportive yet exacting teaching style. To help our advanced students further cultivate their physical comfort and mental capacity while playing and performing, sessions including Pilates, the Feldenkrais Method™ and Peak Performance Psychology will round out the daily schedule.
The Rosamunde Festival (August 16-18, 2019) 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.
