ONLINE!! August 17th – 21st – WELLS, BC 
VIRTUAL 34th Annual International Island Mountain Arts Harp & Cello School
info
Instructors:
Sunita Staneslow
Seumas Gagne
Sharlene Wallace
Marilyn Rummel
Morag Northey (cello)
Tristan Le Govic

Registrants will do a live on-line two-hour interactive class each morning (Monday to Friday, 9:30am – 12pm) with their instructor and their harp, there will be one “special topics” session each day with one of the instructors (mostly a listening class), and then a short concert every evening at 5pm featuring an instructor, with a couple of ceilidh style student performances to begin. We’ll try to be our usual informal, supportive style retreat, and try to meet needs of all our participants as best we can.

The classes will be 2 hours, with a 1/2 break in between – where coffee and talking will reign – there should be few enough students in each that we can somewhat chat with each other – we know that so much of the pleasure of coming to Wells is meeting your old harp & cello friends every year!

Sharlene Wallace (Novice/Advanced Beginner), Seumas Gagné (Intermediate), Sunita Staneslow  (Intermediate/Advanced) and Morag Northey (all levels cello) will be teaching the morning workshops.

And while Sharlene’s class is not for complete beginners, they are welcome IF they take the Harp Start class the week before. It will be offered at no additional cost to registrants for the Novice class. Marilyn Rummel, Island Mountain’s Harp School Founder and Artistic Director, will teach that.

Please get in touch for more information (info@imarts.com).

We’ll all join together for the special topics in the afternoon 2 – 3pm, and for the concerts at 5pm.
We are happy to say that Tristan Le Govic will be playing one of the instructor concert nights, and have a special topic as well all the way from France!
Plan for a virtual ‘Welcome Reception’ at 5pm PST on Sunday, August 16 to make sure you have all the information and technical know how to make your week a great experience!
All the classes will be done by Zoom, and registrants will get the info they need well in advance.
