Mile High Harp Symposium 2021
"Elevating the Harp Community"

On October 2nd, 2021 the Mile High Chapter of the American Harp Society

is hosting its second annual Harp Symposium at Immanuel Lutheran Church!

(4650 Sunview Drive, Loveland, CO 80535)

"Our goal with this event is to bring together all levels of harpists living in Colorado

through collaboration, networking, and creating new friendships."


The day's schedule (9:00 am-5:00 pm) will feature masterclasses, workshops, and performances led by some of Colorado's professional harpists. These classes will feature topics such as therapeutic music, injury prevention, what to look for when purchasing a harp, jazz improv, the power of harpist self talk and much more! During the symposium we hope that you will have the opportunity to explore different facets of harp playing, gain new skills to apply to your harp journey, and get to know other harpists in the area.

Covid-19 and Masking Information

The Mile High Chapter Board takes the health and safety of our members very seriously. In response to the CDC's most current recommendations for indoor events, we are asking ALL of our participants to wear masks (regardless of vaccination status) during all workshops, rehearsals, and performances.  We ask for your cooperation, so that everyone can have a good experience being around other harpists and feel that they can safety attend this in person event.   If you do not feel safe attending this in person event some classes will be livestreamed either by Facebook or Zoom. Please register below using the Livestream/Zoom Access Only Registration ticket option and further instructions will be emailed out. 

Harp Ensemble Experience 

After a year of many of us harpists only playing solo music, we are excited to offer a harp ensemble experience as part of our symposium schedule this year.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate. There will be two ensemble groups and harpists who participated in our virtual Ensemble Compilation Project 2.0 will already be familiar with the music. The Mile High Chapter Board thought it would be an enjoyable experience to play the compilation project songs together live and in person!

Ensemble A - Beginner

Flower Fairies & Fairy Ring from Enchanted Melodies for Two Harps by Kathryn Cater

Creole Lullaby from For Little Troubadours by Dewy Owens (Harpist Favorite from Harp Fantasia 2019)

Ensemble B - Intermediate 

Dyades: 1 & 3  by Bernard Andres 

Bubble Waltz by Stephanie Curcio (If time allows during the rehearsal)

Harpists may choose which part for each song they would like to play and music can be purchased locally through Kolacny Music.  

Signing up to participate in the ensemble experience is simple: On your registration form please indicate if you would like to play in either Ensemble Group A or B, just watch the rehearsal time for either group, or instead participate in the encore class of "The Power of Harpist's Self Talk" taught by Kathryn Harms.

Music Swap

In addition to all of the workshops, performances, and networking opportunities we will have a

music swap room.  We had another generous donation of some sheet music given to our

chapter and we would like to share it with you. Also, if you have any music that you no longer play and it's in a gently used condition, you may bring it with you to donate and add to the swap pile

There will be a harp in the room for you to preview the music and we ask that you initially only

take 2 pieces of music, so there will be an opportunity for everyone to participate. 

Survey of Colorado Harpists 

The Mile High Chapter of the American Harp Society aims to bring the Colorado harp community together, socially and professionally. Please take a few minutes to fill out the Survey of Colorado Harpists by clicking the yellow box below to help us achieve our goal of working towards

stronger network of harpists!

The survey data will be shared during the symposium and then results will be posted online as well. 

Please also feel free to forward this survey link to other Colorado harpists that you know, so that we can survey as many harpists as possible - thank you!

The Mile High Chapter Board hopes to see a variety of harpists from all backgrounds at this event!
