Harp Carnivale - June 22-25, 2014

Astor Crown Plaza Hotel in the French Quarter


If you've never attended an American Harp Society Harp Conference, this is the one to attend! Chairwoman Catherine Anderson has been at work preparing not only informative and fun concerts, Master Classes and workshops, but enticing local cuisine to accompany many of the events planned for Harp Carnivale. A Harp Ensemble contest and a masqued ball are among just a few of the exciting events on the schedule. Taking place in the heart of the French Quarter, it is impossible not to get swept up by the local Cajun flavor and music of the Big Easy. More information is available on the American Harp Society Website, at www.harpsociety.org.
