HIGH SPIRITS MUSIC 19TH ANNUAL HARP WORKSHOP!

with SHARLENE WALLACE

IN WEST KELOWNA, on Friday, May 4, and Saturday May 5. Includes one and a half day workshop, lunch and snacks, and a concert evening. Details on the poster here.

Sharlene is one of our all-time favourites, having brought us her essential style and techniques over many workshops and retreats. She will focus on producing beautiful tone; a “driven-but-relaxed-but-effective” 15 minute warmup to establish your daily practice routine; an ensemble piece for you and your friends; how to approach the harp for spacious arrangements; and her most tasty Latin and Celtic pieces of the year.

Please see our HARP SCHOOL Page for the brochure and to REGISTER.
