Behind the Scenes


Gold MineOnce the warm days of summer set in, most college towns are quiet and deserted. But for 11 days this past June, Bloomington, Ind., came alive as the epicenter of the harp world when 40 talented young harpists from 16 countries gathered at Indiana University to compete in the 10th USA International Harp Competition (IHC).

We asked Competition Coordinator Natalie Hoffman to give us a glimpse behind the scenes at one of the world’s most prestigious competitions. Hoffman blogged almost daily on about the results on stage and the insights off stage from the USA. We’ve put together some highlights to give you a taste of those two weeks in Bloomington.
