LFM Winter Sky, February 4 - 6, 2022

LFM Sky brings together adult amateur musicians and an exceptional faculty of professional musicians with a diverse range of talents. A shared music experience is created through a collection of online instructional workshops, most having limited enrolment to allow each participant individual attention from the coach. Read more about Sky in Ludwig van Toronto.

Unlike LFM Camp in Lakefield, LFM Sky exists only on the internet with coaches and participants in their own homes. The internet offers some challenges to making live music, mostly because we do not see and hear each other in real time. Consequently, LFM Sky will not include musical ensembles and choirs. Fortunately, Zoom software allows us to meet in a virtual conference with large and small groups. We can see everyone in the group, but only one person can speak at a time.

“Summer Sky was wonderful! You and your team pulled off an organizational miracle, both musically with so many different threads, and technologically with the Zoom gatherings. At Lake Field, even remotely, we can be with others who are having fun with music, whether dabbling in a sideline, studying for a retirement hobby, or making their living by doing what they love. Music opens minds. Thanks so much.” Participant, 2021 LFM Sky

Technical requirements:
Zoom software (it is free!) must be installed on a modern computer device with a camera, microphone, speakers, and internet upload/download bandwidths of at least 1.5Mbps. Your bandwidth can be measured at M-Lab, Bell or Rogers. If you already have Zoom installed, please update to the latest version.

Registration fee is $120 + 13% HST (Canadian dollars) per participant for a weekend of LFM Sky.

Registration is closed (All times EST, Toronto).
