I just wanted to say a BIG THANKS from our family for the great experience our daughter Cait (12 years and second violin in the orchestra) has just had in the classical camp during the past 2 weeks. Everyone was so friendly and keen to help the kids adjust – just great!  There seems to have been just the right mix of music and social to keep the kids happy. John and the rest of the wonderful CYMC faculty –  thank you for sharing your gift of music and for inspiring Cait and all of us on her music journey.

A visionary and an idealist, Sarah presents conceptually innovative performances, involving photography, dance, and spoken word. Sarah’s motivation is the belief that music has the power to be a window into our souls, regardless of our age or musical knowledge.

We will be hosting an outdoor afternoon of socially distanced celebrations of music!

The CYMC Music Festival will be held outside on July 10th at the beautiful Anderton Nursery in Comox. Friends and family are invited to enjoy an afternoon of fresh air and fine musicianship, while students are offered the opportunity to show off the repertoire they have worked so hard on.

In addition to our talented students, members of this year’s esteemed faculty will also have the opportunity to participate! Vocelliano Trio, consisting of Classical Faculty Head Helena Jung, Vocal Camp leader Carol Anne Parkinson, and local piano teacher Dagmar Kilian will start the day’s events. Once the students have had the opportunity to present their pieces, the afternoon wraps up with a performance by Tyson Doknjas, Kathryn Wiebe, Jessica Pickersgill, and Erin Tinney of Cascadia Strings, our acclaimed 2021 strings faculty.

It will be an afternoon of celebrating the lessons and relationships built over the week’s camp and will conclude the 2021 summer program.
