Vancouver Island Fiddle Camp

Third Annual Fiddle Camp

From March 12 to 14, 2010, at the Cowichan Lake Education Centre, some of Canada's premier fiddle players will share their skills and passion with fiddle and piano students of all ages and abilities. The Nanaimo Conservatory of Music is presenting the third annual Vancouver Island Fiddle Camp, and this year promises to be better than ever!

The faculty at the 2010 camp includes Gordon Stobbe (fiddle, Seaforth, N.S.), Geoff Horrocks (piano and fiddle, Ottawa ON), Mark Sullivan (fiddle, Vancouver BC), Patti Lamoureux (fiddle, Courtenay BC), Miriam Sonstenes (fiddle, Victoria BC), Zav RT (fiddle, Salt Spring Island BC) Lesley Clarke (visual arts, Nanaimo BC) and Trish Clair-Peck (fiddle, Nanaimo BC). These teachers are in demand at camps and workshops across the country and always deliver excellent and inspiring instruction.

Campers will study specific fiddle styles, offered for every level from beginner to advanced, in small group classes. They also participate in family dances and jam sessions and are treated to a spectacular performance by the instructors at the Cowichan Lake Community Hall. In past years, the camp has been attended by fiddle students aged 5 to 55+ from as far away as Toronto. There is truly something for everyone at the VI Fiddle Camp.

This camp grew out of the Nanaimo Fiddlers program, and is one of the most exciting and dynamic new initiatives at the Nanaimo Conservatory of Music. Registration is now open and there are great early-bird savings for those who register by February 1, 2010.
