Harp Concert and Workshop
Saturday, March 1st, 9:30AM - 4:30PM
Single Workshop: $35
REGISTRATION - 9:30 to 10:00 AM
WORKSHOP #1, The Art of Practice - 10AM-11:45AM
Learning the play the harp is a journey. We need to use our time efficiently so that we are moving forward and to avoid getting injured and frustrated. There are a number of techniques that help you learn faster and stay relaxed. We will work on music and practic it together and learn how to hone in on the difficult parts and build control. Practicing is more than just repetition. Bring your harps and feel free to bring questions and frustrating passages of music. ALL LEVELS WELCOME.
LUNCH FOR WORKSHOP ATTENDEES - 12:00 to 12:45 PM Lunch provided with workshop+lunch+concert tickets
WORKSHOP #2, Fantastic Fingering - 12:45 to 2:30PM
The best fingering can solve an awkward passage, help you phrase more musically, and give you more control. What are the rules for fingering and when should you bend those rules? When should we cross over and when should we raise our hands? We will start with basics to build secure muscle memory and then move to different fingerings to build speed and keep the hand supple. Fingerings are adjusted to your comfort, your level, and the style of the music. We will work with printed handouts, but feel free to email me tricky passages ahead of time so we can use them as examples also. This is also a hands-on workshop for those comfortable reading music and using both hands. ALL LEVELS WELCOME.
SUNITA STANESLOW (harp) AND GARY RAYNOR (bass) IN CONCERT - 3:30 to 4:30PM
Saturday, March 29, 7:30PM
Since forming in 2006, The High 48s have been making music that combines the soulful sound of classic bluegrass with a modern attitude, original songs and a wide range of influences far beyond Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, and Flatt and Scruggs. In a genre created and dominated by artists from the South, The High 48s were born and raised in the Upper Midwest. In a music scene where playing standards is the norm, The High 48s are a band of songwriters who perform their own material in addition to the “festival favorites.”
Because our Music Loft has limited seating, advanced reservations are recommended for most concerts and events. Please call us toll-free to reserve your tickets or for additional information: 1-877-866-3936.
