Leahy Music Camp announces Instructors Concert
The Leahy Music Camp is pleased to announce that a limited number of tickets will be available to the public for the 2014 Instructor’s Concert which will be held on Monday, June 30.
In previous years, the Leahy’s have taken Camp “out” to the community through its House Concert series. This year, the Leahy’s would like to invite members of the community “in” to the Camp to share in the Monday night Instructor’s Concert. As such, they’re holding a draw to give away a pair of free tickets to five lucky winners. To enter the draw, people are asked to submit their name and telephone number by emailing the Music Camp office at firstname.lastname@example.org. The draw will take place on Friday, June 27 after which winners will be notified. This event kicks off at 8:00 p.m. in the Bryan Jones Theatre at Lakefield College School.

The Leahy Music Camp is a four-day event, held annually during the first week of July, in Lakefield, Ontario. It is hosted at the internationally renowned Lakefield College School situated on Lake Katchewanooka. The Camp focuses on fiddle, piano, step-dancing, singing, and guitar, but also offers instruction in other areas like accordion, bass, drums, mandolin, whistles, audio engineering, and more. Special guests and instructors are invited to teach at the Camp each year; musicians from a variety of genres, technical and engineering experts, and people the Leahy’s have worked with over the years. Emphasis is placed on skills, interpretation and expression, history, and the art of working and playing music with others. Some of the many Camp features include a recording studio, a “Music Room” to try different musical instruments, live performances, a Music Computer Lab, and regular jam sessions where musicians of all genres and ages play together.
