The 2017 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 and numerous 1 - 2 hour workshops, Topics include Celtic and world music, jazz, composition, and 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.
The San Damiano Retreat Center is just 40 miles from San Francisco in the hills above the charming town of Danville.
