Hear It Played
We bring the music to life to help you make decisions while shopping in our store! Generally, harpists purchase music without seeing or hearing it first. This is an opportunity to hear nuggets of pieces and find out what is suitable for your current level.
Stage Presence and Etiquette
Monday afternoon – Solo Competition participants will have an opportunity to play parts of their competition piece in the competition venue. You will learn how to approach the harp and practice bowing and exiting the stage.
Find Your Focus
Wednesday afternoon – Elizabeth Richter will lead a 90-minute workshop that will help you use specific techniques to concentrate and focus better during practice and performance.
Wednesday afternoon – Dr. Joanne King will lead a 90-minute workshop on reading lead sheets.
Thursday afternoon – Dr. Charles W. Lynch III will lead this 90-minute workshop. Introductory basics on how to set yourself up for success in your school orchestra or community ensemble: how to prepare your part, how to follow a conductor, how to listen and fit into the ensemble, and other concerns of playing in a large ensemble. Feeling confident in these basics will allow you to focus on adding your voice to the ensemble and ultimately have fun creating music with fellow musicians!
Fun Friday with Faye
