2016 Summer Harp Ramblings

Harp Concerts and Workshop Retreats abound…

This summer, I am honoured to be participating in numerous concerts presented by Mississauga Chamber Music:
   . a solo lunchtime concert for the Out & About Concert Series this coming Thursday!!
   . numerous Artfull Wellness Concerts

   . Summer Concert Series at Riverwood Conservancy (harp, accordion, & bass!!
. Young Audience Programming of Our Night Sky (in the Fall)

 The exciting Musical Brunch Series, hosted by the Prune Restaurant in Stratford, Ontario, is featuring the harp for 6 weekends during Stratford Summer Music Festival.
Clarsach, Contemporary/Classical harp, Baroque harp, Paraguayan harp, Senegalese harps and a Celtic harp duo will each play a weekend 1/2 hour concert accompanying a three-course luncheon. Call The Prune for reservations 519-271-5052.
I will be playing for two of these weekend brunches.
I am happy to be returning to Quebec to teach for a week-long harp workshop retreat in the Laurentians during CAMMAC’s Week 4 CELTIC WEEK! Harps, fiddles, singing, dancing, chamber music, piano playing… and more!
This year is the 30th Anniversary of the Island Mountain Arts International Harp School. The Celtic harp faculty will be yours truly, Phamie Gow, Seumas Gagne, Caroline Mackay and Morag Northey will be teaching cello!
And I continue to play through July for the Sunday Brunches at the King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto. Enjoying this so much!
 The list below outlines some of my harp frolickings for the next few months… and beyond.
Wishing you all gentle summer adventures,
