Oja Musicae Summer Camp is a space for meeting and exchanging musical ideas and experiences where music teachers and students from Spain and abroad take part. At our Summer Camp one can enjoy a very special educational environment in which artistic and leisure activities will be carried out, making the most of the fantastic surroundings of the village, Ezcaray, in La Rioja.
We will put into practice additional activities as well as individual, group and chamber music lessons. In one of them, both teachers and students will act in concert accompanying KEPA JUNKERA, who will perform with us at the Teatro Real of Ezcaray. Besides, he will give us a very special master-class.
Another interesting activity we will put into motion in this edition is the 1st Musical Interpretation Contest in which, upon registration, our Professional Teaching students will take part.
We will also carry out sports and leisure activities.
We will set up three groupings: Elementary Teaching Orchestra, Professional Teaching Symphony Orchestra and Band.
In addition, there will also be Violin Master Classes led by master ALFREDO GARCÍA, and Saxophone Master Classes led by master MARIANO GARCÍA.
We will also organize Choir, Ethnic Percussion, String Instruments Luthier and Mindfulness workshops.
We will organize concerts at the Teatro Real and in other emblematic scenarios in Ezcaray where students, teachers, Orchestras and Oja Musicae Band will perfom.
In short, an appealing and exciting program for OJA MUSICAE Summer Camp 2017, in which we count on an excellent group of teachers, instructors and volunteers. A team thoroughly identified with our project.

Highly experienced teachers who develop, with collective spirit, an artistic, musical and playful activity.
Association Collegium Musicum La Rioja arose from the collaborative work between musical and educational institutions in the academic year 2006-2007.
Following the call launched by the University of La Rioja for the creation of a university choir, a new challenge was posed: offering instrumentalists to take part. Soon students from the university, the music conservatories of La Rioja and the music schools of Logroño, Calahorra and Haro joined.
Promoters of Collegium Musicum La Rioja decided to join together with the aim of encouraging the exchange of musical ideas and experiences among teachers and students. Its musical director, Alfredo Rodríguez Ugalde, teacher at the Professional Music Conservatory of La Rioja, together with teachers of the University of La Rioja and of the three conservatories in La Rioja, devised an open training space where they could promote the musical practice in group.
According to their outstanding didactic philosophy, members work to develop, with collective spirit, an artistic, musical and fun activity which promotes values such as solidarity, coexistence, teamwork and individual effort of young people. In spite of its youth, they have managed to form an authentic symphonic orchestra with a perfect balance among its sections.
We are left to meet the expectations created, correspond with enthusiasm and dedication, and try to surpass the success of previous editions
