The workshops will be held at the KoSA Academy in the NDG neighborhood of Montreal this coming June 26th to July 1st, 2017.

KoSA is a highly-regarded music and events company founded and directed by Westmount residents Aldo Mazza of the internationally recognized group Répercussion and his musician wife Dr. Jolán Kovács (lecturer at the Schulich School of Music of McGill University). They have been expertly designing educational events centered on drums and percussion for over 20 years in such varied places like China, Cuba, Italy. and the U.S.

The company says the time was right this year to show off the KoSA Academy’s new space, including a 45 seat recital hall – in the borough of NDG (Notre-Dame-de-Grace) and host this special event in Mazza and Kovacs’ “backyard.”

The primary mission of this year’s camp will be to provide students of all ages and all levels with hands-on classes taught by world-class artists, but also to learn a variety of percussion instruments and styles for a total percussion experience. This year’s faculty will  include  Horacio Hernandez (Santana), Mark Guiliana (David Bowie), Jonathan Mover  (Alice Cooper/Drumhead magazine), Aldo Mazza (Répercussion, int. soloist), Glen Velez (International Frame Drum Artist), Beverley Johnston (International Marimba Soloist), Billy Konaté (African Master Drummer), Mario DiCiutiis (KAT, Electronic Percussion), and Nanny Assis (Brazilian  percussion and drumset) and the KoSA Rhythm Section:  Yoel Diaz (piano) and Samuel Cournoyer (bass).
