Harp Ensembles / Workshops

Posted in News on January 9th, 2014 by shelley – Comments Off

Dear Harpists,

Following the success of the new harp ensembles in Cardiff meeting on Monday nights ‘Dynamic Harps’ (Student 11-18years and Adult evening class), I am delighted to announce our dates for the spring term, please see below.

For returning members I very much look forward to seeing you again to begin our next adventure and for anyone looking to join us the groups have been wonderful, friendly, supportive and dedicated so we are all very keen to welcome you in to the group!

The two ensemble workshops are as follows:

·         Dynamic Harps (Students 11 – 18 years): A harp ensemble with a twist which will focus on show, pop, film and jazz tunes. This is for secondary school age harp students at grade three level and above.

·         Dynamic Harps Adult Evening Class: This is an ensemble class for adult learners working on repertoire from traditional, classical, world and modern musical genres.

These ensemble classes are intended to run in addition to one to one harp lessons.

If you would like to read further information please email me and I will send you details: info@harpwales.com.

The sessions will take place at the Radyr Methodist Church, there is an excellent adjacent car park and good access for bringing your harp in.  

The dates for the ten spring 2014 sessions will be:

13th, 20th, 27th January

3rd, 10th February

NO SESSIONS on 17th or 24th February (please note this is a two week break from sessions).

3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st of March.

Provisionally I would like to suggest some sort of St David’s day themed gathering March for the two ensembles and perhaps another ‘appearance’ at the end of term – I believe some of our members have some ideas so we will discuss this at the start of term.

So… the big question…will you like to join Dynamic Harps (Student or Adult) in January? If so please email me to confirm and I will email you over directions and a sign up form. You can then bring your sign up form and cheque/cash payment for the 10 weeks along to the first session on the 13th of January.

I look forward to hearing from you with your confirmation! I am really looking forward to starting the sessions and I hope you are too.

Wishing you a ‘Harpy New Year!’

Shelley
