Rusty Musicians Summer Camp

Rusty Musicians Summer Camp

Conducted by Bob Bernhardt
Begins July 25, 2018 Ends July 29, 2018

Spend a week with us in the summer and immerse yourself in music and performance.

Rusty Musicians Summer Camp is designed for adult non-professional musicians. With expert instruction from members of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and other professional musicians, Summer Camp provides a unique opportunity for classes, rehearsals, and sectional instruction – all leading up to a performance on the stage of the Winspear Centre!

Join your fellow non-pros for a week of intense and fun orchestral study – and fall in love with making music all over again. Opportunities for private lessons and masterclasses are also provided, as is an optional chamber music track for even more music-making and performance opportunities.
