Mile High Harp Symposium 2023
"Elevating the Harp Community"
On September 24th, 2023 the Mile High Chapter of the American Harp Society
is hosting its third annual Harp Symposium at the Center for Musical Arts!
(200 E Baseline Rd, Lafayette, CO 80026)
"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 (1:30 pm-7:45 pm) will feature masterclasses, workshops, and performances led by some of Colorado's professional harpists. These classes will feature topics such as commissioning a harp concerto, establishing yourself in a new area, playing in a band, teaching and maintaining a studio, beginning harp as an adult, 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.

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

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!
