We are excited to announce a virtual solo recital and masterclass with special guest harpist
Solo Recital November 14th

Tickets: $10 for Mile High Chapter Members
$15 for Non Mile High Chapter Members
Join us November 14th at 4:00 pm for a virtual performance with Grace Browning, soloist,
ensemble player, and harp faculty at Denver University. An equal devotee of solo and operatic
literature, Grace will share an interactive program featuring works by Grandjany, Parish Alvars,
Tchaikovsky, Loiellet, and Lizotte, and tales from her life as an opera harpist.
Performance Psychology Workshop & Masterclass November 15th from 3:00 - 6:00 pm (MT)
Tickets: $10 to audit (unlimited)
$40 to play on the masterclass (limited to 5 Spaces)
This interactive Workshop/Masterclass will be divided into two parts.
First, come learn some performance tips and tricks in the Performance Psychology 101 lecture. Then in the second half of the class, hear Grace Browning work with harp students in a masterclass setting.
Choose between auditing this combo class or choose to play for Grace on the masterclass (Workshop included). There is only 1 performance spot left and it is filled on a first come first serve basis, but there are unlimited audit tickets available.
Grace Browning would like to encourage all workshop participants to have their harp available during the interactive class to try some of the performance techniques together. Participants can be muted, but can still interact in our virtual environment.
Both of these events will be held virtually in hopes that we can have a great turn out, but still respect current social distancing rules. The links for the recital and workshop will be sent out an hour before the event, so keep an eye on you email inbox.

After having huge success with the Online Student Evaluations, the board has decided to host our Regional Recital Online (using Zoom) on
Saturday August 1st, from 2pm- 5pm
We want to give our community of musicians an opportunity to share their music with each other, which we hope will inspire growth and curiosity in its participants!
Here are the Details...

We ask that you provide the title of the piece, the composer, and the length of the piece you would like to perform on your registration form.
How Long can my performance be?
In order to keep the recital available to as many musicians as possible, repertoire will be limited in length to 3 minutes for beginner pieces, 5 minutes for intermediate pieces, and 7 minutes for advanced pieces.
How do I share my performance?
Each participant will have the option to either pre-record their video and share it with the Zoom audience from their own device during the recital, or they may choose to perform their piece live via Zoom.
Is there a cost to perform on the recital?
No, it is FREE for current active members to participate. If you are not a Mile High Chapter Member you will need to pay your membership dues for the current membership year.
