About the Algoma Music Camp
The Algoma Music Camp was the dream of the late Ed Gartshore, a highly regarded Sault Ste. Marie violin and orchestra instructor.
It was his love of watching young musicians develop confidence in their musical abilities that drove him to establish the camp.
Ed’s professional contacts with musicians throughout North America served him in forming a superb faculty.
The result has been the influencing of students, many of whom have gone on to professional music careers.
In 1995 the Algoma Music Camp was one of only 15 recipients in Ontario to receive the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Ministry of Citizenship.
Nestled in the hills on scenic St. Joseph Island, 60 km east of Sault Ste. Marie in Northern Ontario, the Algoma Music Camp has been producing enthusiasm and dedication in its students for over 40 years.
The 50th anniversary Algoma Music Camp will run from July 20 – August 2, 2014.
