2017 Bösendorfer Chamber Music Summer Camp

On August 13, students and faculties from Bösendorfer Chamber Music Summer Camp gave us a fantastic music show, which was also a perfect ending of the 6-day 2017 Bösendorfer music summer camp.

This Bösendorfer music summer camp is organized by Bösendorfer Chamber Music Academy (BCMA), and co-organized by Loewen Piano House School of Music, aiming to improve students’ ensemble ability, enrich their ensemble performance experience, and widen their musical vision at the same time.

During the 6 days, BCMA faculties designed scientific and reasonable curriculum, which covered comprehensive areas and knowledge, from basic to advanced, to stimulate the learning enthusiasm of students. Besides one on one training and rehearsal, hip-pop & baroque dance and team building classes were also included, to strengthen students’ ability of cooperation.   

The two chamber-music concerts were scheduled at the last two camp days. On August 12, all students and faculties went to Telus Garden, located in downtown area, to give the audiences their first formal performance of this summer camp. Their perfect performance has impressed all audiences at that day.

The Final Gala Concert was arranged in Loewen Piano House Bosendorfer Music Hall, at 3:00 pm, 13th. The music hall was full of parents and audiences at that day. Students confidently showed their study results to all audiences. The piano, violin, cello, viola and clarinet sound perfect together. Students also performed the Piano Duet and Piano Six hands. Although the camp was only 6 days long, students cooperated very well. At that moment, the instruments are their best communication tools. At the end, four professional faculties performed piano duet, followed by ensemble performance of all students, which pushed the performance to another climax. All audiences were enjoyed their performance. They gave all performers their warmest applause.

Both students and parents have learned a lot from this Bösendorfer Music Summer Camp. For Loewen Piano House Music School, we are very proud to see the improvements and success of every student. We will keep bringing more activities to support students’ musical achievements.
