HARP ON WIGHT INTERNATIONAL
The sixth annual Harp on Wight Festival will take place in Ryde between October 25th and 29th October. Without doubt, the strongest element of the five previous festivals held to date is that the event has built a respected reputation for bringing together a diverse range of outstanding harpists from a wide range of countries. With that in mind, the word 'international' has been added to the festivals title this year.
The event will offer both concerts and teaching workshops in Scottish, Irish , Breton, classical jazz music with performers due to attend from Austria and Italy as well as Scotland and - for the first time in the festival - Ireland. In another first for the event , the festival will be inviting a harp ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music to perform and participate in the festival.
A popular feature at the festival is always the wonderful exhibition of harps made by international and national manufacturers. This will take place in Ryde Methodist Church in Garfield Road and is free to enter in daytime hours throughout the festival, except at times when concerts are taking place. The exhibition also includes a wide range of harp accessories and sheet music.
Details of all concerts and teaching workshops can be found at www.harponwight.co.uk
