Les Jeudis de la Harpe, Season V
April 28, 2022
Les Jeudis de la Harpe, our popular YouTube concerts, are returning to the silver screen for a fifth series. This time, there’s a twist: we’re going on tour!
Live concerts have resumed in many parts of the world, but many musicians are still facing travel challenges. Les Jeudis de la Harpe has therefore packed a suitcase of lights, cameras and action and is broadcasting from the artists’ home countries. From Brazil to China, Japan to Germany, we are looking forward to a great variety of backdrops and, as ever, musical styles.
We’ll keep you guessing about where we’re travelling each week, but joining us will be easy as ever. Log on to our YouTube channel every Thursday at 19:30 CET for the concert premier and live chat, or simply catch up later. All concerts last about half an hour, a perfect way to wind down after a busy day at work, and are free of charge to view.
The first concert will be given by Veronika Lemishenko, Principal Harpist with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine. For obvious reasons, Veronika’s concert is the only one of the series not to be filmed in her home country; she has done it on the road, as part of her European tour to raise funds for Ukraine. We are grateful to our partners throughout the Jeudis de la Harpe series, Julien Hanck Productions / Arpeggio Films, for their immediate support to ensure that this recital could still happen.
Now, more than ever, we are reminded that music is a symbol of collaboration and civilization. We’re looking forward to welcoming you every Thursday evening on Les Jeudis de la Harpe.
