Calgary Arts Summer School
"Discover the Fine Arts Within Yourself"
Summer School Fine Arts Courses for All Ages
We are Calgary's Summer School for the Arts!
July 2 to August 1, 2014 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Merry Christmas from all of us at CASSA!
We Offer Fine Arts Courses and Workshops
We started twenty years ago with the brilliant idea of providing a summer workshop for piano students. We now offer seven fine arts courses and workshops and an annual recital. Our courses are designed for fun and education for a wide range of interests and ages. Read on to see what we offer. If something interests you, click on the program (see the list to the right) for more details. Our courses are offered in Calgary, Canada.
Do you need a Christmas gift idea?
Hallowe'en has come and gone, there's snow on the lawn, Grey Cup is over and the mayor of Toronto has dropped out of the news, so what's next that's exciting?
Well, yes, we know that Christmas is next but even better, CASSA is only seven months away and the best news of the month is not only that the 2014 CASSA Registration Form is available on the site for downloading (making it a super gift for Christmas), but you can now register and pay online for immediate results. Given that Christmas really is upon us, you can still have that special gift in someone's stocking, just in time for the big day.
A registration for CASSA is an ideal present for that special someone (be it child or spouse); it's ready-made for the musician or dramatist in your house. A Christmas gift of a registration at one of the Piano Camps, for example, would be an ideal way to provide encouragement for a pianist in your house to keep bright and happy, practising enthusiastically during the dark, dreary winter months ahead. Do you have a son or daughter who likes drama? Give a gift to Musical Theatre Showtime and keep your home a happy place with something so exciting to look forward to.
Now, wouldn't that be a nice surprise for someone? Look at the links to the right for more information.
… and don't wait, register today.
Clinicians Announced for 2014
Willard Schultz and Edwin Gnandt will be the clinicians for Piano Pedagogy Workshop for 2014. Edwin Gnandt will be the clinician for Piano Camp and Adult Piano Camp.
Composer for Piano Camp
Chopin will be the composer for Piano Camp — this doesn't apply to Adult Piano Camp — and registrants may choose any piece by Chopin that they want to learn for their composer piece. Campers will still need to prepare another piece for the master classes and recital. It does not have to be Chopin but it can be.
