Millikin University - Decatur, IL
Canada Summer Music Residency

See website for updated information:

Millikin University’s music residency at the St Andrew’s Arts Festival will be entering its sixth year next summer with a full production of a Baroque opera, a community-based oratorio presentation, and many instrumental performances at numerous venues in the town and around the region.  The festival has become truly international with events happening around New Brunswick as well as in Maine – just a short distance away.   

Join us for several glorious weeks by the sea in Canada's Maritime provinces intensively studying the history, culture and music of our nearest neighbor.  As well as attending classes in quaint and historic St Andrew's-By-The-Sea, New Brunswick, we will take day trips to colorful Acadian historic sites, board a ship excursion to go whale-watching, visit art galleries and fish farms, hear concerts featuring local Celtic and Acadian musicians and Millikin ensembles, sample local cuisine and much more.  

St. Andrews is a quiet, seaside town on the Bay of Fundy, northeast of Calais, Maine.  Summer weather is typically cool and sunny with occasional fog and rain.  The cuisine focuses on seafood and fresh produce with an international influence.  Performing and visual arts are highlighted at many local venues and tourist sites.  Go to the following website for more information about the town and area: 

But what is Canada REALLY like?  What are the subtle cultural differences and influences that might be missed at first glace, if considered at all?  Where are the scenic hideaways that only the locals know about?  What makes Canada distinct and unique?

Some of these answers may be found in the summer immersion course, Introduction to Canadian Culture, offered in conjunction with St. Andrews-by-the-Sea Summer Music Festival in New Brunswick.  Satisfies IN 350/Global Cultures/ICS.
