Stage Photos, Lovely Workshop, Meeting Young Harpists, and more!

I finished my Paris composing retreat last week and the last stop in my Europe adventure is Cardiff, Wales. Now that this month-long journey is nearing its end, the perfect way to top it all off is by a truly remarkable celebration.

I have been invited perform and conduct a harp workshop at the Cardiff Camac Harp Weekend 2024. This year’s event is special because it marks the 25th anniversary of  Telynau Vining Harps being the Camac Harps’ distributor in the UK.

It’s a fantastic weekend of harp concerts, workshops, talks and masterclasses and I’m so thrilled to share with you how we celebrated this beautiful event.

Stage Photos …

What an honor to grace the stage at this very important event! This is me (center standing) performing at the concert with Ben Creighton Griffiths (left), Jakez François (rightmost), and Amanda Whiting (right).

Lovely Workshop …

It’s such a delight to help other harpists express themselves through the harp. This is me teaching all in attendance how to create their version of my show-stopper “Baroque Flamenco”.

Meeting Young Harpists …

This is my photo with Bethan Cole in France (2016)

We met at the Camac Harp Weekend in Cardiff 2024. What a difference 8 years can make.

I met Sofia – a talented young harpist during my “Play Your Passion” harp workshop.

Thank you Sofia and to all the harpists who attended my workshop at the Cardiff Camac Harp Weekend 2024!

… and more!

After the celebration, my dear friend Shelley Fairplay – the visionary crafter of Fairplay Harp School – hosted a hybrid event called “Harp Night Live with Deborah Henson-Conant and Shelley Fairplay” to make this wonderful weekend more special. We thank everyone online and in person who joined and we loved seeing you all!

This is the group photo we took after Harp Night Live with the in-person attendees and the ones who joined in virtually. Thank you Shelley for sharing this photo.

I truly enjoyed my whole Europe adventure and it inspires me to share all those moments with you.
