For a twelfth year, an internship program will be offered in pre-festival 2020. Chants de Vielles offers instructional workshops for singers and musicians from beginner, intermediate and advanced levels (hurdy gurdy, pipe, song, guitar, flute etc…).

Led by singers, singers, musicians, and teachers, the programs will be presented in two parts. The first, before the festival, will be on Thursday, July 2 and Friday, July 3,  2020, where students will have the opportunity to experience learning in a small group, and the second, during the festival, where students can experiment with their learning in front of an audience.  Since 2018, there is also a Music camp for kids on Friday. This year we are adding an introduction to violin class for kids on Thursday.
