Just an update on the upcoming World Harp Competition of the Dutch Harp Festival. Our final deadline for applications is coming up soon: November 30th! Anyone who’s interested in applying can visit the official website here: http://www.harpfestival.nl/competition/. The competition is open to all harpists of all ages, and all genres of music. The New York round will be on February 21st, 2020.
The Dutch Harp Festival embraces creativity and innovation, and through the World Harp Competition we hope to redirect the focus of harpists around the world to discover and develop what it really takes to succeed in today’s musical environment. We do this by challenging candidates to present their most authentic and creative selves to the jury, in a context that combines the very real situation of pitching an idea to a programmer and performing at a festival with the rigorous structure of a world-class international competition.
Does this sound like something for you? I’d love to hear from you! Or do you know someone who might be perfect for this competition? Pass the news along!
