A Message from Elinor Bennett
I cannot believe that this will be the 40th annual festival for me to organise at Easter – and I’m proud to present an interesting festival this year which will appeal to harpists of all ages and attainment.
We look forward to the concert with Catrin Finch and the jazz workshop by the acclaimed Austrian harpist, Monika Stadler, who brings a breath of fresh air and new dimensions to the world of harp music.
We will also celebrate the enormous work of the famous harpist-composers from France – Henriette Renié, Marcel Tournier, Marcel Grandjany – to the music and development of the harp.
