Mile High Harp Symposium 2020
"Elevating the Harp Community"
On February 22nd, 2020 the Mile High Chapter of the American Harp Society
is hosting its first annual Harp Symposium at The Bridge at Bear Creek Church!
(3101 S Kipling St, Lakewood, CO 80227)
"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 basic music theory at the harp, jazz improvisation, harp maintenance, therapeutic music, practice tricks, and much 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.

PRE REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED to February 19th, 2020
In addition to all of the workshops, performances, and networking opportunities we will have a
music swap room. (Meeting Rm 1) We had a generous donation of some sheet music given to our
chapter and we would like to share it with you. If you have any music that you no longer play and it's in a gently used condition, you may also 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 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!
