Harptacular brings a unique learning, networking and performance opportunity to a city near you! Join us for a harp-filled weekend featuring an exhibition of harps, a recital by local harpists, a masterclass and recital by an international guest artist and workshops presented by Lyon & Healy staff.

We also invite any and all student harpists to perform a piece (up to 10 minutes in length) in a closing Student Showcase on Sunday morning. Soloists and ensembles are encouraged to participate. Please designate your interest to perform on the registration form below. A Lyon & Healy representative will contact you to confirm your performance details.

*Those wishing to perform must submit a registration form at least one month in advance of Harptacular.

 

All Harptacular events are free to attend, but registration is required.
