UNITED KINGDOM HARP ASSOCIATION
The next edition of the North London harp competitions will take place in Muswell Hill on May 6th – 7th, 2018! As ever, there will be recital classes from Grade 1 to Grade 8 (any age), study classes for <13 and <18, <18 and open chamber ensemble classes, and the Camac Competition for advanced students and young professionals. Many thanks to Heidi Krutzen and Eleanor Turner for agreeing to be our jury this year - and to Paul Patterson, who once again will present the prizes on the Bank Holiday Monday.
The closing date for all competition entries is April 2nd, 2018. You can download the syllabus here, and apply online or download the entry form here. This year, we say a huge thank-you to Helen Sharp for all her past work as festival administrator; she is now stepping down and Camac is doing the admin. Any questions, please therefore contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the fifth year running, the Camac Competition also features a paid lunchtime recital for the winner at the Proms At St Jude’s, on June 29th, 2018. This prestigious concert series is a community festival of music and culture which takes place annually in Hampstead Garden Suburb. It invites a wide range of top national and international artists, and gives all its surplus funds to charity. We're very pleased about this performance opportunity - and grateful to all our wonderful prizewinners, who have ensured its continuing success.
