The 2016 International Harp Festival will be held at the beautiful San Damiano Retreat Center in Northern California. We will bring together many of the harp community’s best clinicians and performers. Our mission is to educate and inspire you and to connect you to harpists from around the globe.

The festival will include One Day Intensive workshops as well as numerous 1 - 2 hour workshops. Topics include healing harp, Celtic and world music, liturgical harp, improvisation, and much more.

You will have time throughout the day to shop for harps, music, and accessories, and meet and mingle with other participants, the performers, and facilitators.

Every evening you will enjoy concerts featuring harpists performing The Blues, Straight Ahead Jazz, World Music, Folk and Classical repertoire.

Harp Circle 'In C'
Limited Capacity seats available

You are invited to come play this simple minimalist group composition by the celebrated Bay Area composer Terry Riley. In C consists of 53 short musical phrases that can be repeated any number of times before an individual decides to move to the next phrase. This creates a beautiful, soothing, and meditative wash of sound that is both fun to play and inspirational.

The score may be downloaded in PDF format below.
