Kitchen Rackets is proud to announce that our
Third Annual Music Camp on the Canal will be held in St. Peter's from
Friday June 6 to Sunday June 8, 2014.
Between year 1 and 2 we grew from 30 to 50 campers - from 3 Maritime provinces and eastern Canada, and from New England to California. We are expecting many of you to return again, and a slightly larger crowd this year. We have increased the size of our faculty and the range of workshop themes, and we have fortified our venues throughout the village.
Music Camp is a weekend experience beginning with a reception/jam session on Friday evening; a Saturday full of workshops; a Saturday night All Star Concert featuring our faculty and special guests... followed by a Kitchen Racket with campers and players from the St. Peter's community. On Sunday, there's time for a morning workshop or band practice. To complete the weekend, the Sunday luncheon features performances by Band Lab participants (which could be you!). There is more throughout the weekend: jam sessions, on-site instrument repairs, close-up encounters with your instructors and fellow players from far and near; local artisans market, great food - lunches and supper are included.
Virtually every camper gave us high marks for providing a fun and worthwhile musical and social experience in our first two years. We got some great suggestions for improvements that we've tried to incorporate this year. Kitchen Rackets 'cooks' have been doing some musical taste-testing and menu planning. Watch this web site for updates.
Who should come: any amateur musician, at any level of accomplishment, who wants to learn some new stuff, close-up and 1 on 1 with some incredible teachers.
We have a Celtic orientation with a world view. Also, you should come if you want to meet and play with like minded musicians. We have an 'accompanist' program for partners who don't play an instrument. Campers are all ages from grade school students to senior citizens. (You don't have to camp, most people stay at the Inn or local hotel, although there is camping avail.).
Music Camp is all about the people, so we are delighted to announce our faculty for Music Camp on the Canal, 2014 and hoping YOU will join us.
