Zagreb is gearing up for its second International Harp Festival, organised by our partner in Croatia, Tajana Vukelić Peić. The festival schedule will be released shortly, but you can look forward to a star-studded week, with Marie-Claire Jamet as guest of honour. She will be joined by artists like Gabriella Dall'Olio, Sylvain Blassel, Ina Zdorovetchi, Mirjana Krišković, Mirjam Lučev Debanić, Tanja Vogrin, Tina Žerdin, Mersiha Shukri, and the Zagreb Soloists. There is particular focus on promoting young musicians, with a shared recital by Lenka Petrović and Julien Sabbague.
There will also be a lever harp competition for the under-twelves. The choice of programme is entirely free, up to seven minutes' duration, and is a great chance for young harpists to practice their performing skills in a competition situation! All information and rules are available in the document below.
