The Somerset Folk Harp Festival has invited us to test-drive its new interactive platform, “Somerset Square.” So our next “Harp Time Live” is taking a FIELD TRIP to Somerset Square. That’s April 1st AND 8th at 4:30pm ET (or come early, at 4:15 to explore this cool new interactive virtual environment.)

If you’re already signed up for Harp Time Live you don’t have to do anything special to attend except click on the link I’ll provide in my regular Harp Time Live email.

>> If you’re NOT already signed up for Harp Time Live, click here.<<

Just remember: You must be registered by NOON EDT on APRIL 1 or 8 in order to get your free pass to Somerset Square.  We’re not trying to rush you, it’s just that, in order for you to get in, we have to set your log-in up individually and we need time to do that.

Here’s what it looked like when I visited with Kathy DeAngelo at Somerset Square last week.  And it was sooooo much fun to drag my little icon around to visit different rooms.

Here’s What’s so Cool about This

Lot’s of apps are interactive – but what’s SO powerful about the interactivity in Somerset Square is that it supports HUMAN interaction!  It’s the most like being in a ‘real’ festival environment of any online experience I’ve ever had! You can:

  • Invite people to one-on-one conversations
  • Join a conversation with a small group of people
  • Enter a zoom room that’s set up like a classroom, for a live workshop.
  • Visit the Exhibit Hall booths and listen to harps, purchase sheet music or meet live with the exhibitor

And we’ll be doing ALL OF THAT on Thursday!

Just make sure you’re signed up for “Harp Time Live” by NOON EDT on Thu. Apr. 1st or 8th (if you’re already signed up, no need to sign up again)

Then join us — and arrive a few minutes early to log-in, and add a profile pic to your virtual name tag so other people can easily see who you are.

This platform is best viewed using a laptop or a desktop or a tablet. Your phone is not going to give you the best experience. Most browsers are supported except for Safari Mac.

Here’s a short (1.39-minutes) video on what you can expect: https://youtu.be/_sBqnfkBNVI

We’ll all be meeting up at the Coffee Bar. When you enter Somerset Square, drag your icon/avatar (you are shown to yourself as ME) over to the Coffee Bar, which will put you into a video conference “room,” with everybody else. The tour will kick-off from there!

DON’T KNOW what “HARP TIME LIVE” is?

Here’s some info about this FREE weekly virtual Harp Jam

 

WHAT IS IT?  A virtual harp jam every Thursday! Each session lasts about an hour.

WHAT WILL WE DO?  We’ll have play-alongs and learn one thing each time that people can put into play right away.

WHY AM I DOING THIS?  We all need a sense of connection, and we need little things we can complete and do to ground us, and give us a way to connect.

CAN OTHER INSTRUMENTALISTS JOIN? – or even people who don’t play an instrument? YES – all are welcome. Not everything will be perfectly applicable to all instruments & voices, but all are welcome to join!

No stress, just fun! FREE and Online!

Once you sign up, not only will you be able to attend the Harp Time LIVE sessions as they happen, but you’ll also be able to log-in to the Academy, and access all replays! Here’s how:

  • Check your email confirmation after you sign up to get your academy log in info
  • Go to HipHarpAcademy.com and log in
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the dashboard and look for a RED icon that says “Harp Time with DHC”
  • Click on that icon and you will see a link to the LIVE zoom room & have instant access to the previous session!

Final notes:

  • To see the LIVE sessions you’ll be able to link to the zoom room from the page in the academy AND directly from the email reminders that we send before each LIVE event.
  • When you’re on the Academy website, you’ll notice some class icons are black and some are red. The RED icons are the classes you can access based on you level in the academy, the BLACK icons are classes that would be available to you if you upgraded to a full membership.

Join me and harp players around the world!
