Hungarian Competition Invites Entries


The 3rd International Harp Competition in Szeged, Hungary, invites harpists to participate in their next event, which takes place November 28–December 1, 2013. Prizes from €100 to €1500 will be awarded in three divisions for harpists under 12, under 17, and under 25. “The harp is not a very frequent instrument in Hungary, but it is getting to be more and more recognized thanks to the harp events like the International Harp Festival in Gödöllő, International Harp Competition and Spring Harp Days in Szeged, and Summer Harp School in Budapest,” says competition Artistic Director Natalia Gorbunova. “The program is mainly of free choice with few Hungarian set pieces for the two older categories, and Debussy Dances as set piece for the second stage of the eldest category. I hope that in 2013 new young talents will be revealed, and hope that this competition will be great experience in the life of the competitors and will help many to develop their musicianship.” The competition is supported by Camac Harps. The deadline to enter is September 30, 2013. For more information and repertoire,
