On March 19th 2017, L’Espace Camac Paris is delighted to welcome Felice Pomeranz, professor of the famous harp class at Berklee College of Music. The list of Berklee alumni reads like a Who’s Who of contemporary music, and the harp is no exception: browse the websites of MarieMarie, Charles Overton, Nicolas Castaneda, Mairi Chaimbeul, Maeve Gilchrist, Pia Salvia, Olivia Fortunato, to name but a few.
Felice began the harp programme at Berklee in 2002. She was the first harpist to receive a master’s in jazz studied at the New England Conservatory, and since then she has been a clinician and performer at festivals throughout the US, Europe, Australia, and the Caribbean. Her extensive publications include several jazz methods: an instructional DVD Jazz Beginnings, the CD/workbook and play-along Harp in the Band, and now: Berklee Harp.
Berklee Harp is all about becoming a better improvising harpist. From it, you can learn chords, chord symbols and harmonic progressions for use in jazz, folk and other styles. It’s suitable for pedal and lever harpists, and for playing solo, or accompanying yourself and others. Of course, it is available from your one-stop shop for all things harp (except harps): the Camac e-store.
The event at L’Espace Camac will mark the European launch of Berklee Harp. Everyone is welcome to join in a workshop from 3PM – 5PM with Felice and her rhythm section – the more the merrier, but please reserve your places in advance! You’ll have a chance to play some of the exercises in Berklee Jazz (whether you already bought it, or not – Felice will send you handouts in advance). After a short break, Felice and her group will perform in concert, from 6PM – 7PM.
NO jazz or improvising experience is required. Come and have fun!
