What happened at the event?

The CMVic Treetops Music Camp 2014 was a vibrant weekend of music making, singing, and dancing, with sessions and workshops for all tastes and abilities - it was a chance to learn, participate, exchange, and celebrate. Here's some of the highlights:

  • Friday night all-in welcome party in the marquee
  • Saturday night bush dance and jazz party in the marquee
  • The Destiny Project - an all-in ensemble with the Madins
  • Street band big blow and procession
  • Fiddly folk tunes & sessions
  • Singing workshops
  • Singing leader 'recharge'
  • New songs for ukes & marimbas
  • Kids songs

Open to everyone whether a CMVic Member or not, this unique and fun event brought together in one place choirs and street bands, young and old, beginners and old hands.  As well as lots of opportunities for singing and playing music, there were leadership skills sessions for both singers and instrumentalists too.  Great workshop leaders from all over Victoria ran a wonderful variety of sessions, and the camp provided lots of space for enjoying all the free time people wanted.

A total of 97 people came to the event, including 22 under 25's.
