Wanna Play Harp? Take Our I Always Wanted to Play the Harp Workshop below
Have you ever said to yourself "I always wanted to play the harp"? Experience a harp first-hand, literally. We have a 45-minute workshop offered to any of our daily Visitors. Sure, you're coming for the day to check out the Exhibit Hall and maybe go to a concert, but this mini-workshop is intended as a "get acquaited" session. Robbin Gordon-Cartier is an experienced harper and teacher and she'll get your hands on a harp. There's nothing to be fear or feel self-conscious about. Learn how to make a "joyful noise". Ask questions. Get answers. After this workshop be sure to attend the daily "harp tasting" and be the judge on what kind of sound you like in a harp.
