The Elizabeth Hainen Harp Colony at Curtis Summerfest 

is an advanced training ground for the world’s next generation of professional harpists. The colony is a true pedagogical institution, with emphasis on individual development for promising young harpists as well as professionals. The distinguished faculty conducts an intensive program of master classes, ensemble playing, and orchestral training.


Harpists looking for a rigorous program will benefit from an intensive week of orchestral training through mock auditions, master classes with Elizabeth Hainen, and harp ensemble with Nancy Lendrim, culminating in a performance in the final concert. Whether looking to enter competitions or merely seeking a greater knowledge of the repertoire, students will benefit from a full exploration of harp literature.

Build friendships, share ideas, and enrich your musical talent in an intimate atmosphere—and enjoy yourself thoroughly in the process. Visit http://summerfest.curtis.edu/young-musician-programs/elizabeth-hainen-harp-colony/ for more information.
