Harp Concerts, Workshops, and Master Classes

Harp Concerts

Because of the Covid19 pandemic, this year concerts have disappeared from our calendars. The World Harp Day happened, anyway.
"The ​main goal​ of the World Harp Day is to create a fertile ground for cultural dialogue: this new tradition shall become a​ reminder of peace and unity​ to all countries, and a source of inspiration for the development of the harp as a diplomatic symbol of art, health, and solidarity in addition to a magnificent musical instrument.”  

Here are 6 hours of videos from 80 harpists around the world. https://youtu.be/O8ouFNsQfHo. For more information, go to http://worldharpday.com/.

 

Harp Workshops

Amherst Early Music presents a class on the historical harp! “Drone Away” (“Bordon/Bordone”) with Judy Kadar* will happen Saturday, April 24, 2021, 1:00 EDT, 19:00 Central European Time. A drone is a constant tone or tones accompanying a melody. Although we associate drones with bagpipes and hurdy-gurdies, there are also pieces utilizing them in lute, keyboard and harp repertoire. In the Middle Ages some instruments – vielles, harps and perhaps recorders – were equipped with built-in drones! We will be playing works from the 16th and 17th centuries to see how we might create accompaniments for Medieval and Renaissance music. (Music can be downloaded after registration.)  Join in with your harp tuned to 440 and play melody, drone or both, depending on your capability. You don’t need a harp with levers, but should have a tuning key nearby to temporarily tune an F# in one piece or a Bb in another.

 Class participation fee is $25 (US), approximately 21 Euro.  Registration begins on Monday, April 19, at https://amherstearlymusic.org

 *Judy Kadar, a Berlin resident, is renowned as a specialist in historical harp music.
