Pacific Harps Festival 2022

Pacific Harps Festival, Pasadena 2022Pacific Harps, our partners in California, are holding a fantastic festival in early November! Come to sunny Pasadena for a star-studded line-up of guest artists, concerts and workshops across all musical styles, the chance to get your harps regulated, and to try out some of the latest Camac harps. Tickets can be booked online here

On Friday, November 4, you can register from 2PM and explore the harp exhibition. At 4PM, Liza Jensen will give one of her famous harp maintenance workshops. She’ll remind us what’s important, debunk myths and legends, and show you how to carry out simple harp care yourself. If you haven’t been to one of Liza’s workshops before, we warmly recommend it; if you have, come anyway, and refresh your memory!

At 6:30PM we’ll welcome a performance by the festival’s Youth Harp Ensemble. This will be followed by a classical recital with our first guest star of the weekend: Claudia Lucia Lamanna, winner of the 21st International Harp Contest in Israel.
