Across the categories, Hasselmans, Vincent Ghadimi, Dizi and Godefroid have all been selected for 2022’s edition. We are also delighted to supply pedal and lever harps for the candidates.

Our second Jeudi de la Harpe online concert is going to travel far away from Paris – all the way to China, and Beijing’s world-famous Forbidden City concert hall.
We have had the pleasure of working with Guan Wang several times already. She was our honoured guest at the Camac Festival in Belfort (2018), and in 2019 we were delighted to welcome her, her colleagues and many of her students for a musical tour of France.
Professor of Harp at the China Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and Principal Harpist of the China National Symphony Orchestra, Guan will perform her Jeudi de la Harpe concert with her colleague Ma Wen (cello). Harp and cello is a beautiful and still unusual combination: join us on May 12, 19:30 Paris time on YouTube to experience it for yourselves.
With their unique blend of blue harp, bass, traditional music and jazz, Christina Braga and Ricardo Medeiros are legends of the harp with Brazilian soul. Camac’s second YouTube concert of the Jeudis de la Harpe, Season V, is a perfect opportunity to experience them in concert: It will be a very special broadcast from Uaná Etê, Cristina and Ricardo’s garden in the heart of the Brazilian forest.
The artists will also be accompanied by a host of Brazilian birds… download the programme to find out more!
