Welcome to the website for the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Harp Society. We are an organization of harpists and harp enthusiasts from throughout the Greater Philadelphia region.
The Philadelphia Chapter of the AHS has been active in bringing world class performing artists to Philadelphia since the 1970s. Comprised of local harp students, professionals, and friends of the harp, chapter members embody the rich and diverse harp history of our city. Annual meetings present local, national, and international harp talent to our members and the community in the form of workshops, concerts, and masterclasses. In 2004 Philadelphia was home to the AHS National Conference, featuring top artists from throughout the country and around the world. The chapter provides annual venues for student recitals and semi-regular student competitions. Read more about our chapter members.
The Philadelphia Harp Society is always looking for new members. Join today and share your love of the harp with us!
