We welcome incoming 6th through graduated 12th grade students for a non-competitive week of comprehensive studies on the many aspects of the harp and its music, history and ensemble playing. Ensemble rehearsals culminate in an extraordinary recital at the end of the week.  Other exciting classes and activities include “Famous Harpists,” “Wedding Workshop,” masterclasses, and private lessons with our faculty.
