Performance

Stick Camp Canada focuses on performance.  There will be some performance every day at locations around Gabriola Island.  The pub next to the Gabriola ferry terminal has hosted more than a few Stick performances!

Can I Play?

Absolutely! Everyone attending is encouraged to perform.  And if you have never had a live Chapman Stick performance before – no problem!  One of the advantages of working in groups is to be able to perform with a group – a much less daunting task than solo performance, especially if it is other Stick players helping out.

Composition

Our very first island retreat, on nearby Saltspring Island in 2003, was special not just for the hexagonal, straw bale and adobe lodgings, or the on-site, free-range chickens, who were kind enough to lay enough eggs for our breakfast each morning, but also that, at our Sunday evening concert, next to the giant quartz crystal, half of the music performed had been written that weekend, mostly with the help of Stickmaster Greg Howard.

Some optional afternoon sessions are for group composition, with a goal of performing new works sometime during Stick Camp.
