This summer 14 students from the Dixon Hall Music School and the University Settlement House Music School attended either the junior (grades 3-8) or senior (grades 8-12) music camp at the National Music Camp of Canada on Lake Couchiching. We visited the NMC at the end of the junior camp week to see the students rehearsing the their production of Matilda, attend the Faculty and Music Staff concert and have dinner with them under the stars of a glorious Friday night. Many thanks to Camp Director, Bruce Nashman, Music Director Mike Ferguson, chef Roch Beaudry and all the faculty and staff for their warm welcome. It's such a pleasure to see both students and faculty perform with such enthusiasm and joy. Our campers are only a small part of the camp which caters to kids from across Canada pursuing their interest in music, making new friends from very different backgrounds and just enjoying camp fun that includes swimming, water-skiing, canoeing, wall climbing, zip-lining, soccer and basketball.
