    Introducing Grantville Online (CMVic Music Camp 2020)

    Jump to the latest full program here

    Imagine a music camp where it never rains, the beds are super comfy, and the rooms are always warm…you can even bring your pets.

    For one evening and one day, Friday 29th May and Saturday 30th May, the 2020 CMVic Music Camp at Grantville goes online in an endeavour to deliver all this and a fantastic program too!

    The CMVic Music Camp is a much-loved annual event for community music makers and leaders of all experience, all ages, and all skill levels from absolute beginners to experienced old timers, and not even a pandemic can stand in its way. As we take things online we invite you to open your virtual front door and welcome into your very own home a group of amazing workshop leaders and peers from the community music scene across Victoria.

    This will be an opportunity to participate, to learn, to share and to collaborate. The past couple of months has been a worrying, stressful period and one we're all trying our best to find our way through. Saturday offers an opportunity to be guided and supported through a series of online sessions and workshops, with plenty of opportunity to sing and to play, and to reflect and explore the impacts of this time on us as leaders and participants: what we've found useful, what has worked well and what we still need!

    What's the structure?

    • Check out the program below. It's packed with fun, interactive workshops led by amazing workshop leaders and peers from the community music scene across Victoria.
    • Join one session or make a full day of it and join as many workshops as you like - this is a great chance to try out something new from the comfort of your own lounge room.
    • We'll be using Zoom, but no one will be able to hear you, so go for it!

    What will it cost? 

    It's free!  But...we will be paying a fee to all of our workshop leaders as we do every year, so a 'pay as you can' contribution at the time of registration would be hugely welcome - but ONLY if you yourself are not suffering any financial hardship.

    How do I register?

    We will then send you all the information you need to login to the online Zoom sessions, plus any other information you need.

    Tell me about the program! (updated on 28-May-2020....expect further updates till 30-May)

    The full program as a printable pdf can be viewed and downloaded here

    (N.B. If you're using a Zoom App - as opposed to web based - make sure to download the latest version otherwise it won't work from 30th May!)
