• Under the artistic direction of Ghislaine Petit-Volta and Laurence Bancaud, the Collegium21 competition encourages even the youngest harpists to explore contemporary music. There are four levels from beginners to advanced conservatoire students, combine very new works / world premiers, with free-choice pieces. One special feature of the competition is its series of masterclasses prior to the contest, where students can work directly with the composers of the set works. Moreover, all the masterclasses are filmed and later published online.

    This year, Collegium21 has made a big effort to increase the accessibility of the competitions to international students: their website now also has an English version, with all the information you need to take part. Curious harpists should also explore the website of Collegium21’s sister association, Les Signes de L’Arc. They have also translated their excellent reference book – La Harpe aux XXe et XXIe siècles – into English, as Guide to the Contemporary Harp.
