What new in 2012 season?

Due date: 21/12/11

We have finally updated our offer for 2012. Due to great demand for Piano ensemble major we would like to extend our program into 3 sessions in 2012. The 3rd session is to be finally confirmed at the end of January 2012 depending on the number of applications. Session III will offer new majors International Choral Ensemble with the opportunity to sing in English or Latin. Jazz Band has been very popular as an elective program for many years so we decided to give it a try as a major. It will also include some Marching Band experience which can be valuable for many wind players. Czech Theatre might be also interesting for international students with some Czech background to practice the language of their parents or grandparents. Art major is coming back as a major program.
Because of uncertain situation around euro, the prices for 2012 are in USD. The price can be calculated in EUR according to current exchange rate. We use 3 price zones instead of World Discount group, zone A is mostly Eastern Europe, zone B is the rest of EU, USA, Canada and countries whose citizens mostly do not need tourist visa to come to the Czech Republic, all other countries are in zone C.



15th season

Due date: 7/08/11

In short, AMAZING. This is the way to describe the 15th annual season Czech Music Camp Fine Arts Camps Europe which took place from July 21 to August 6, 2012 in Horni Jeleni, Czech Republic. 190 young musicians and 37 group leaders from 13 different countries participated in this event. The season opened with Hana Prerov Youth Band that performed in our camp after 14 years. It was our first guest performing group when we started our camp in 1997. Many band players take part in our program especially Symphonic Band which was conducted by Jon Waite (Wisconsin, U.S.) who was also in charge of Jazz Band elective program. For the first time in the Czech Republic came to conduct Ms. Valerie Palmieri, who has extensive experience in conducting youth orchestras in the U.S. state of Michigan. Both symphonic ensembles worked on their separate program as well as shared pieces. Probably the strongest experience was a concert in the Holy Trinity Church to commemorate the founder ČHTM Fr. Walter Marek.
Besides regular concerts we could also organiye some performances in town, especially jazz band, clarinets and flutes performing in the square, recorders and choir elective performing in the Home for Elderly in Horni Jeleni. Many people in town also enjoyed the marching band in Horni Jeleni just before the memorial concert in the church.
Big thanks go to our supporters, especially Town of Horni Jeleni, Pardubice Region. Horni Jeleni Public School hosted our piano department.
Although before the start of the season there was a great concern about the future of the music camp because of declining support from public budgets, the quality of this season, well-functioning new staff team and a growing interest in this project abroad give this project hope of survival. If everything goes well, the 16th season will begin on July 19, 2012.
