Rosewood Music Camp is an annual family music camp that is on the same weekend as the Grand Final. I have just returned with my family from three days of amazing music and although we are all a wee bit exhausted, my cup is overflown with the joy and fullness of the weekend. It is difficult to put into words all the layers that the camp brings to your being, but I do know that it is a unique opportunity to totally unplug from the commercial fast paced world we often find ourselves in and experience true connection both with friends and with ourselves.
The music at the camp ranges from celtic to jazz and much in between. We have song writers, horn players, lots and lots of ukulele strummers, viollins, cellos, whistles all emanating from the workshop tents and camp sites.
The camp has been running for 22 years and every year I go I always remark that every time it feels like the best camp ever!!
Everyone is welcome, families that want to join their kids in a bit of music making, older couples, loads of teenagers, toddlers, groups of friends with or without kids...everyone. No previous experience in playing an instrument is even necessary as their is always beginner classes in either ukulele/marimba/whistles etc.
The youth band blows my mind every year, normally the power and beauty of 60 musically adept teenagers playing together brings me to tears, and ensemble...you just have to be a part of it to know the ecstatic joy of sitting in amongst 100 people playing music together...
Every Grand Final weekend, 400 people gather in a valley to create a little bit of heaven on earth. Make sure you join us next year, 25th-28th September 2020.
