Mountainside Early Bird deadline April 21, 2023


Our enriching and enjoyable summer programs for 2023 in Nelson, BC are rapidly approaching. Early Bird deadline is just 17 days away!

Nelson is a beautiful and quaint city nestled in the mountains offering a wonderful get-a-way where you can enjoy making music with other passionate string musicians and enjoy the fine restaurants, swims in the refreshing lake, picnics at the beach, walks on local trails and more.

Calling for more violins!! Please pass this on to violinists who may be interested in Chamber Strings camp!
