Our board is busy planning events for 2019, and we have some exciting announcements to make regarding scholarship opportunities in our December newsletter issue of Resonance.
We are excited to confirm our next Chapter event will be a Harp-a-thon on January 13, 2019 from 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM at Horizon House Retirement Community in Seattle. Amateurs, students, and professionals are all welcome to perform in 15-30 minute time slots. Please sign-up to confirm your participation. A pedal harp will be available for participants, or you are welcome to bring your own.
And save-the-date for a sponsored talk with harp technician and regulation expert, Steve Moss of Moss Harp Service. This sponsored talk features topics on lever and pedal harp tuning, safe cleaning methods for the harp, professional techniques for replacing wire strings, moving your harp safely with a dolly, and transporting your harp. The event will take place February 24 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the home of Susi Hussong. Steve Moss will be scheduling regulations from February 19-24 by appointment. Please contact Susi Hussong to make arrangements.
