PAST EVENTS

WINTER GATHERING 2020

The Winter Gathering 2020 was held at Entally Lodge, Hadspen, however participant numbers were restricted by health regulations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you to Kathleen who stepped in at the last moment to lead (and conduct) the day's activities. Everyone from new beginners to the more advanced players were catered for in the ensemble pieces arranged by Emily. The day was a good opportunity for individuals or groups to play the pieces of music they were learning. The day ended with the three ensemble pieces now played at most Harp Society gatherings - Clancy's Reel, Pink Panther Theme arranged by Emma and On the Road to Bicheno by Jakez François.

HARP ISLAND 2020

This year's Harp Island was held at the Tamar Valley Resort, Grindelwald in March. Katryna Tan from Singapore returned to be our guest tutor. The weekend included a mix of open and closed lessons, ensemble rehearsals and free time. It was a great opportuity to browse the pop-up music stall and try out new harp music, as well as catching up with the other participants. The weekend ended with a public concert showcasing the music practised during the three days. The large ensemble piece was Katryna's arrangement of Offenbach's Can Can which was enjoyed by all.

SPRING GATHERING 2019

The Spring Gathering was held at the beautiful Emu Valley Rhododendron Gardens in Burnie on a rather cold day. However, inside the venue the friendship, food and music was warm and inviting. During the day there was the opportunity for groups, duets and soloists to play for each other in a relaxed atmosphere.
