Gabriola Island Inspires!

Enjoy a Musical Vacation on a beautiful little island that is away from it all!  Chapman Stick players from North America, South America and Europe (so far!) are gathering on Gabriola Island in late May to meet, share ideas and Stick experiences, create music, and perform together.


There is an active Arts Community on Gabriola Island and it is easy to see why.  Panoramic views let your musical imagination wander.beach-and-logs_0801

Sharing Ideas

Time is scheduled for open conversations about music, music theory, Stick technique and playing styles.  Got something to share? Bring your ideas and we’ll schedule time for you.


Have something you wish to share?

Everyone attending is encouraged to share their musical ideas, experiences, and techniques in whatever setting is most comfortable: presenting to the entire group, sharing in small groups, or one-on-one.  And we don’t have to be in a classroom, either!


“Teflon” Sharing

Stick Camp Canada is also a time to share non-Stick stories and experiences.  We all need down time, so why not relax with Stick Players?



Another element of Stick Camp Canada is Group Composition.  Afternoon session have time dedicated to composition by groups of 2 or 4 or more.  For any groups who are prepared, this music will become part of the evening’s performance.

Need some musical ideas to play around with?  There’s no better place for bouncing ideas than a gathering of Stick players! With or without instruments, there is plenty of time to talk about music.
