Harp Circles are announced by the board.    

These are informal gatherings with the objective of sharing harp music.  One book we often use is called Finale which can be purchased at Kolacny Music.  It has a variety of folk tunes at various levels.  Whoever is leading the harp circle may also bring music depending on the level and interest of the group.

Also, individuals are invited to play a piece he or she has been working on. The emphasis is on sharing and encouragement, not on performance. Members are encouraged to discuss the ups and downs of playing and questions are encouraged. 

We may spend some time playing ensemble music with 2 or more parts if that is the wish of the group.  

Workshops.  A workshop may be lead by members of the harp society or by professionals.  Costs will vary based on the workshops being offered. They may be one-day events or continue over a period of a few weeks.

Ensembles.  Currently there is one ensemble group known as The Harplanders.  You are welcome to sit in on a Harplanders practice session to see if it is a group you would like to join.  The group meet every other Thursday afternoon at the Englewood Public Library in the Altenbach Room.
