30th Annual HHS Workshop and Conference
July 10-14, 2013
Eastman School of Music
Rochester, New York
The Historical Harp Society's 30th annual Workshop and Conference will be held at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester New York from July 10-14, 2013. The event will overlap both with both Eastman's "The Practical Harpist" workshop led by Kathleen Bride, and with the Eastman Community Music School's Harp Workshop led by Nan Gullo Richmond. In addition to an unprecedented offering of a wide variety of instruction, there will be almost daily harp concerts.
The Workshop will run from July 10-12, with three classes per day, including a master class by Professor Bride. The Conference will be held the weekend of July 13-14 in Howard Hanson Hall, a comfortable and well-equipped recital hall in the main building. The HHS faculty concert will be presented on July 11 in Hatch Hall, the school's new, state-of-the-art chamber music hall in the East Wing. The campus includes the Sibley Music Library, one of the largest music libraries in the country. The Special Collections Department is particularly rich in harp-related materials and resources, and includes the HHS Repository.
The Eastman School of Music is located in downtown Rochester, with an assortment of lodging and restaurants within easy walking distance. Parking is readily available on the street or in the ramp garage adjacent to the school. Dorm rooms will be available for approximately $70 per night, which includes three meals a day.
