Well, here it is the 15th of July already and we’re trying to get everyone organized to register for camp… I can’t recommend to you all enough to register for our camp, and come experience the beautiful new location we’re going to be using, let alone all the fun things we will do at camp! It’s tiring and crazy and fun and inspiring and I think we all play more in the 4 days of camp than we do the entire summer, which is great! This year I will be bringing my parents, which will be interesting for me; my father is a violinist and an avid composer, as well as being an amazing conductor and most importantly one of my musical muses of my life… and my mother was my grounding musical education person – she would yell note corrections from the kitchen was I was practicing piano and she was making supper – you see, my mom is a pianist, and was my very first music teacher before she decided that she didn’t think she could teach ‘scatterbrained’ me so she sent my sister and I off to another piano teacher. Which, in retrospect, I think was a good move. I remember having note accuracy competitions with my Dad (still do occasionally to this day) since we both have perfect pitch – I don’t know whether he let me win, but I do remember winning most of the time! Hope to try that with Lucas sometime too. And yes, Lucas will be coming to camp and hopefully my husband Bill too, with a few swimmers in tow. So, we’re all looking forward to the time at camp! Plus, being so close to Malpeque harbour, I can picture a few good lobster and seafood feeds for those of us who are seafood lovers!
So register now – I know I’ll be there and hope to see you all there too!
