Camac Launches L’Académie Camac


The first L’Académie Camac, sponsored by Camac Harps, will take place April 19–24, 2014, near Aix en Provence in the south of France. The académie will select five harpists age 18–30 to work with the French master teacher Germaine Lorenzini through participation in daily lessons and informal performance opportunities. “The pursuit of a life in music is profound and noble, but it is also often grueling,” says Camac’s Jakez Francois. “For some years now, I have dreamed of a Camac Académie, to provide our young clients with an exceptional chance to work under ideal and highly individual conditions, where they may relax and flourish.” Camac will cover the full expenses for each participant, excluding travel. Applications to L’Académie Camac will be accepted beginning December 1; more information can be found
