Créativ' Harp, the francophone Swiss association led by Céline Gay des Combes and Elodie Wulliens, is holding an Irish Harp Weekend in Vevey, in the late autumn. Janet Harbison, doyenne of the Irish harp and our inspiration for the harp we named after her, will hold a course of group lever harp masterclasses between November 7th - 9th.
Students will also have the chance to share the stage with Janet, forming a harp orchestra to accompany her at the course closing concert in Clé-de Voûte, November 9th at 5PM.
Janet and harp orchestras are no strangers to each other - her ensemble The Irish Harp Orchestra is famous throughout the world, so you couldn't ask for a better ensemble-playing chance.
If the thought of performing in concert with Janet Harbison makes you feel thrilled but also - well, terrified, don't panic. The course is suitable for all levels, and the part you play in the final concert is guaranteed to be one you will also enjoy!
The deadline for inscriptions is September 15th, 2014. Download the application form below for more information.
