TCU Harp Workshop
June 6, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 8, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Three days of solo masterclasses and ensemble rehearsals as well as interactive and informative sessions about the harp. Festival Recital Performance at the conclusion of the workshop. The theme for this year’s workshop will be “Elevate Your Performance.” Guest Artist Grace Browning, Principal Harpist of The Dallas Opera and Santa Fe Opera, will lead students in unlocking their own creative potential and reaching new heights for their own best performance. Topics covered will include: developing your own musical ideas, honing your ability to focus in any circumstance, managing your energy level, establishing a pre-performance routine, and cultivating healthy self-talk and a positive inner voice. Grace will also share the story of her career path as a professional harpist, and tales of life in the opera pit. Dr. Laura Brandenburg will direct the Harp Ensemble and present “Glissando 2.0,” a masterclass on glissandi performance practice.
The workshop is open to young pedal harpists 8th grade and above, intermediate to advanced level. Students are asked to bring their own instruments, as availability of rental harps is quite limited.
