Solo, small group, and large ensemble rehearsal and performance are at the heart of the Harp program. Harp students participate in the following:

Harp ensemble is a daily class that focuses on the skills, art, and joy of chamber music as we explore challenging harp ensemble repertoire. During this block of time, you will also have studio classes, with opportunities for performance, practice, discussion of practice methods, and the occasional guest artist master class.

Harp students rehearse and perform with the Intermediate Symphony Orchestra (2021 repertoire coming soon) and Intermediate Wind Symphony (2021 repertoire coming soon). These large ensembles present two concerts per three-week session, with repertoire carefully selected to challenge and inspire young musicians.

This program features a highly educated and experienced harp faculty, with whom you will have weekly private lessons. Dedicated practice time is available on days when no lesson is scheduled.

Faculty appointments for Arts Camp 2021 will be finalized in spring.
