Category: en, Tradition, Information, School of music

From June 26 to July 1, 2019 in Palanga will be the XIX International Folklore Camp - creative school
"TRADITION". The organizers are the Folklore and Ethnography Center of Lithuanian National Communities, the
School of Slavic Traditional Music, the Vilnius Center for Russian Folklore.

During the time spent in the camp, the children will not only have a great time by the sea, but will also
acquire knowledge about the folk culture and meet other like-minded people from different countries. A team of
experienced teachers will educate and look after the children with much care and attention, while letting them enjoy
the live communication with their surroundings. There are specific groups for each age group. Every group schedule
is thought through to the smallest detail, to ensure the best possible results.

Parents will also be able to attend classes and all activities of the camp and, together with the children, will
explore the vast world of folk traditions.
The camp program includes:
● Daily classes on traditional folk singing, choreography, folk theater, folk games, arts and crafts, making
folk costumes. All classes are taught by world-famous teachers from Russia, Georgia, Belarus, Ukraine,
Poland, Lithuania (from 4 to 6 hours daily);
● Round table for the teachers "Best practices in preserving traditional culture in different countries";
● Performances of traditional theatre, fun beach activities and games, the evening of folk dances
(traditional evenings), expeditions, cultural entertainment program;
● Concert at the Botanical Park of Palanga;
● Closing ceremony of the summer school and a concert of folklore collectives - participants of the
school "Tradition" in the Palace of Count Tyszkiewicz (Museum of Amber).

For 17 years, the school "Tradition" has become famous not only because of the vast, up to the
minute thoughtful training program and the benefits of its participants from immersion in the world of
traditional folk culture. The summer school "Tradition", first of all, is known for its talented teachers from
Russia, Lithuania, Belarus, Poland, Ukraine, which are recognised for their achievements in different
countries. This year, the pedagogical staff of the school "Tradition" will also include teachers from
Georgia who will introduce students to the traditions of Georgian polyphonic singing. Georgia is one of
the few countries in the world with such a high choral culture. In 2001, UNESCO recognized the
Georgian song as a masterpiece of oral intangible heritage.

Also, one more innovation awaits the students: they will get to learn the genre of Lithuanian
sutartine and perform a collective sutartine at the final concert in the Museum of Amber.

Leaders and participants of folklore ensembles, teachers of music schools, art schools, creative houses,
educators and musicians of kindergartens, all interested in raising the level of the performing culture and improving
the methodology of working with the folklore collective are invited to take part. Teachers will receive the
Certificate of Professional Development (CPD; duration: 56 hours). The organizers provide a free visa to Lithuania
(except the visa center service fee), accommodation in bedrooms for 2-4 people with all amenities (15 minutes from
the sea), 3 meals a day, daily training up to 6 hours a day. The cost of the tour is 300 euros.
