The 2016 International Harp Festival will be held at the beautiful San Damiano Retreat Center in Northern California. We will bring together many of the harp community’s best clinicians and performers. Our mission is to educate and inspire you and to connect you to harpists from around the globe.

The festival will include One Day Intensive workshops as well as numerous 1 - 2 hour workshops. Topics include healing harp, Celtic and world music, liturgical harp, improvisation, and much more.

You will have time throughout the day to shop for harps, music, and accessories, and meet and mingle with other participants, the performers, and facilitators.

Every evening you will enjoy concerts featuring harpists performing The Blues, Straight Ahead Jazz, World Music, Folk and Classical repertoire.

Have you ever wondered how many different ways you can play a glissando? Or do you wish to get more variety out of your music? Come explore the often-unheard sounds of the contemporary harp. Learn about extended harp techniques, how to "prepare" your harp, and how to play the harp with auxiliary tools. Check out how many of these sounds were developed and implemented by celebrated harpists and composers and how you can use them too, to give new life to your own arrangements, improvisations, and compositions.
