Fiddleheads Summer Camp!
Join us for a week of theatre and fiddle workshops at the Mill Rd. Community Space in Chelsea, QC! The camp is open to all youth ages 7-19, and you do not have to be a member of Fiddleheads to participate!
Theatre (Instructor: Rebecca Benson)
Led by a professional actor, participants will be introduced to drama exercises that will enhance their performance skills and strengthen their confidence. In small groups, participants will work together as an ensemble on a theatre vignette that will be showcased at our end-of-camp concert. If appropriate, fiddle music will be incorporated into the vignettes through the help of the theatre and fiddle instructors. No theatre experience is necessary; this class is meant for all levels of aspiring actors.
Fiddle (Instructors: Kyle Burghout, James Stephens, Jane Cory)
Participants will be divided into 3 separate class levels (Intermediate I, Intermediate II, and Advanced), based on age & ability, and will have the opportunity to work with all three instructors throughout the week. Participants will learn new tunes and from a variety of fiddle traditions, as well as harmony parts and advice on appropriate style to compliment the tunes. In addition to working in their respective class levels, participants will also have the opportunity to play all together in a larger group, and they will perform what they learn at camp at the Friday evening concert.
Please note all participants are required to have at least 2 years of playing experience to partake in fiddle classes. Classical violinists are welcome to attend—no prior experience playing fiddle tunes is necessary!
Special Guest Instructors: The Fitzgeralds
Acclaimed fiddlers and step dancers Julie, Kerry, and Tom Fitzgerald will be coming to camp on Friday afternoon to lead our fiddle workshops! The Fitzgeralds will also be performing a concert on Friday evening, to which Fiddleheads Camp participants will receive free admission. All participants will also be performing alongside The Fitzgeralds to open the concert!
