TCU Harp Workshop
Three days of solo masterclasses and ensemble rehearsals as well as interactive and informative sessions about the harp. Festival Recital Performance at the conclusion of the workshop. The theme for this year’s workshop will be “The Music of Bollywood.” Guest Artist Sonja Westberg, touring artist with Sound Spirit Event Company in Southeast Asia, will guide students in exploring and performing the colorful and rhythmic music of Bollywood films (as featured in the hit movie Slumdog Millionaire.) Ms. Westberg will also lead discussions on “Life Skills for Musicians”, and “Musical Entrepreneurship.”
Dr. Laura Brandenburg will direct the Harp Ensemble and present “In the Mode,” a seminar in understanding and improvising in different modes.
The TCU Summer Harp Workshop is open to young pedal harpists 8th grade and above, intermediate to advanced level. Students are asked to bring their own instruments, as availability of rental harps is quite limited.
