    I would like to compete in some competitions for pedal harp, but I
    don’t know how to find them. I’m 17 and I’ve been playing about 8
    years. Does anyone know of any other ones other than ASTA (which I
    missed the deadline) and AHS? I’d really appreciate any help:-)

    Steven, AHS stands for the American Harp Society. I think she already belongs to it…

    I believe there are Celtic & Scottish harp competitions, thru their respective organizations.

    Contact your local musicians’ association. They may have brochures from
    local music competitions, which have not yet put harp in the roster. Get the
    ball rolling!

    if you are interested in competing internationally, many competitions such as lily laskine (in france) have junior divisions. a good resource for this is the world harp congress’journal. also look for local competitions, for instance: concerto competions with youth orchestras, music society competitions, etc. good luck!

    This competition is linked with Presidential Scholars.

    There are regional and national competitions that include all instruments. Some are sponsored by professional orchestras. They are a great supplement or alternative to the usual harp competitions. Of which there are more than ever, by the way.
