Mairi ChaimbeulEvery harp player is interested in how to do Accompaniment and Arranging, so we list anything here that has to do with these topics. On this list. sorted alphabetically by title, we've marked how the workshop is presented: whether it's Live on Zoom (we give you the date), whether it's a Video (from 2022) or in our Archive (2020 & 2021). We'll have about 85 "Live" workshops and events during festival weekend so don't worry if you miss one or there are 2 workshops on at the same time that you want to go to. We're recording them and will post them on the workshop pages on Somerset Online, soon after they occur. All of the "live" workshops dated 7/21-7/24 will be held in-person in Parsippay and on Zoom at the same time. To see the times for the Zoom workshops, see our Live Events page. The "Archive" workshops need to be part of your online subscription for you to access them. You can add Archive access at anytime before the festival.
