HarpFest VII will take place in Singapore between September 8 – 11, 2022. After the long pandemic, its motto is “Dreams beyond the rainbow”. “We have accompanied so many students in their harp dreams”, says Katryna, “and we are looking forward to accompanying many more, throughout the next twenty years.”
Rave Harps will be joined by their colleagues and co-students from Thailand and Indonesia, and guest artists from Europe too. There will be concert appearances and a masterclass with Isabelle Moretti, and we are delighted to sponsor Rossitza Milevska and Cédric Le Donne’s jazz night. The full programme ranges from harp concertos to harp ensembles, and offers some fantastic active performance opportunities.
Your HarpFest delegate pass gives you access to 6 concerts, 10 masterclasses/workshops, diverse showcases and, we promise you, an unforgettable long weekend in a beautiful setting. Register before the end of May, and enjoy your early bird discount.
