Getting Here





The International Harp Academy of the Pacific provides an environment of space and time in a beautiful setting, allowing the participant to leave the pressures of academic and performing life behind.


Have you been wishing to take 2 weeks off and just "retreat" from your orchestra job and/or teaching schedule to practice, learn new work(s), rest, rejuvenate, strengthen and be inspired, with opportunities to perform...?

Here is the opportunity: a Harp "Colony" in one of the most beautiful places on earth where mornings will be entirely free for practice and afternoons will be devoted to Master Classes where we will cover all the major harp repertoire - woven through with art history, philosophy and consciousness work.

Students should arrive in Powell River on Saturday, June 15 and depart on Friday, June 28, 2013.
