Harps are not just for St David’s Day - Concert with Cardiff Harp Ensemble Dynamic Harps
Dogs are just not for Christmas and Harps are not just for St David’s day!
It is quite simple a rite of passage in Wales to perform on St David’s day if you are a harpist. Every year for at least a week either side of the 1st of March our diaries are filled with extra concerts, workshops, school visits and celebratory dinners.
This year we wanted to make a stand, to start a campaign to say ‘Harps are not just for St David’s Day’!
Come along and join Dynamic Harps for an evening of Harp Ensemble Music on the 24th March 2017.
Dynamic Harps is a community ensemble based Cardiff. The membership ranges from harp novices to students studying for their top grades, with children through to post retirement performing together in the group.
This supportive and dedicated group of fellow harp enthusiasts meet weekly to play a diverse range of musical genres together; traditional, classical, pop, rock, show tunes, film music, Jazz and more. Songs are requested by the members and arranged by their director Harpist Shelley Fairplay for the students to perform.
The performance offers a unique opportunity for an audience in Cardiff to hear this wonderful ensemble of 20 + passionate and dedicates harpists performing together at this wonderful venue so suited to the harp, the Norwegian Church at Cardiff Bay.
