The uOttawa Summer String Academy is an intensive 2-week summer string program for violin, viola, cello, double bass, and piano students held on the campus of The University of Ottawa’s School of Music, located in the heart of Ottawa - Canada’s capital city. With a focus on developing musicianship in solo and chamber music, university and advanced high school students are encouraged to audition to work with the internationally recognized University of Ottawa faculty!
Each student will receive multiple lessons and masterclasses each week, as well as daily chamber rehearsals and coachings with their assigned group. Students will have access to practice facilities, and will prepare for multiple performances through rehearsals and masterclasses with one of our faculty collaborative pianists. Individuals will be placed into chamber ensembles, but pre-formed string quartets are encouraged to apply. Bass students may have a slightly different, but comparable, bass focused curriculum.
With our world-renowned faculty and dedicated administration supporting you, the 2024 uOttawa Summer String Academy will create an intensive, inspiring, and fulfilling experience for your musical development!
