    Happy New Year from us all at the UKHA, and we wish everyone the very best for 2017! Here is a lovely reminder of the 2016 UKHA Christmas party— our wonderful young harpists, who gave much pleasure to their enthusiastic audience. Thanks to Maryam Nazari for taking the photos!

    We have received request from Natalia Shameyeva, who gave a wonderful recital at the RAM several years ago.  She sold her solo harp CDs in 'blue boxes' to people in London but it has since been discovered that the CDs don't always work on some equipment.  Now the great Russian artist has had them re-pressed and she wants to offer these instead.  She has asked that anybody who purchased the 'blue boxes', be in contact so they can swap the insides!!

    Please, anybody who bought such a CD, feel free to contact Karen at MKVharpist@aol.com, and she will try to exchange them for you.

    It has been brought to our attention that the charity Help Musicians UK has created a fantastic new scheme for hearing protection within the music profession. Membership to the scheme includes: the opportunity  to receive a hearing test and custom made earplugs ( ideal for use in the pit or orchestra) for £40 (or £30 for Musicians Union members) per annum. 

    Protecting your hearing is vital, and as such hearing protection can cost upwards of £150-£300, it is something we highly recommend you take advantage of. For more information, visit: https://www.helpmusicians.org.uk/working-retired-musicians/musicians-hearing-health-scheme/cost-and-joining

    We thank Mary Reid and Karen Vaughan for bringing this to our notice.

    One of the most prestigious international harp competitions reached its climax last weekend, with three harpists of three different nationalities scoring top honours. In first place was Katherine Siochi (USA), in second was Elizabeth Bass (UK) and in third a Serbian player, Lenka Petrovic.

    All three players ''wowed'' their audience and distinguished panel by performing the Ginastera concerto with full Orchestra. It was a very proud and auspicious moment for us here in the UK, for Elizabeth Bass is one of our most accomplished young players and herself a UKHA member, and former committee member! Elizabeth is a student of Skaila Kanga  at the RAM, having studied with Eleanor Turner beforehand. 

    We congratulate Elizabeth, all of the prize winners AND all the worthy competitors who have achieved so much just by preparing the competition, and its several stages of virtuoso material.
