Camac Harp Competition, London 2018
November 22, 2017
The North London harp competitions will take place in Muswell Hill, London on May 6th – 7th, 2018. We have sponsored these competitions for over a decade. They include recital classes from Grade 1 to Grade 8 (any age), study classes for <13 and <18, <18 and open chamber ensemble classes, and the Camac Competition for advanced students and young professionals. Jurors will be Heidi Krutzen and Eleanor Turner.
The Camac Competition also features a paid recital opportunity for the winner at the Proms At St Jude’s, on June 29th 2018. This prestigious concert series is a community festival of music and culture which takes place annually in Hampstead Garden Suburb. It invites a wide range of top national and international artists, and gives all its surplus funds to charity.
Past PASJ programmes have featured John Lill, Nicholas Cleobury with the Choir of Kings College, Cambridge, The Chillingirian and Brodsky Quartets, Daniel Lebhardt, The Tallis Scholars…and, now for the fifth year running, the lunchtime harp recital. This sort of repeated engagement in the musical mainstream is invaluable in developing interest in and awareness of the harp, and competition prizewinners can look forward to a warm welcome as a favourite lunchtime event!
Closing date for all competition entires is April 2nd, 2018 and this year the admin is being organised directly by Camac. All enquiries, please therefore contact Helen Leitner, Artist Relations Manager: [email protected] You can also download the competition flyer below (PDF, 1MB).
