Held at the spectacular Sanctum Retreat Centre near Calgary Canada, the Canadian International Summer Harp Institute provides a unique place for harpists of all ages and levels to immerse themselves in a week of intensive training on their instrument with world-renowned teachers, Judy Loman, Julia Kay Jamieson and Gianetta Baril and to enjoy the camaraderie of similarly motivated students.
Now in its 7th year, CISHI has quickly gained a reputation for its high quality of instruction, individually-tailored programming, fun, supportive and spontaneous atmosphere. Because all participants and faculty reside at Sanctum, enjoying fabulous healthy meals and off-schedule moments from exploring the 160-acre grounds to firepit singalongs and spontaneous jam sessions or a quiet chat in the Chapel, CISHI provides a rare opportunity to share life experiences and get to know each other on an intimate level. Students and faculty alike come for the course and return for the community!
Dates: July 20 – 27, 2018
Course Package including full room and board
Early Bird rate until March 15 – $1600 CDN (approx. $1240 U.S.)
Harp Instructors: Gianetta Baril, Judy Loman, Julia Kay Jamieson
The CISHI program includes private lessons, workshops and ensembles and any other classes that may be added depending on the needs and number of registered students. Registration also includes ticket to the Faculty Recital.
Separate from their private bedrooms, all students also have individual rooms for practicing and private lessons. Participants move their harps to workshop/ensemble sessions.
Participants cover individual cost of transportation to Caroline, Alberta. If travelling to Calgary Airport (YYC), CISHI Administration will endeavour to assist with organizing a ride-share with a local participant.
For information regarding participation of students under 18 years of age, please contact CISHI administration at email@example.com.
