Welcome to the American Harp Society in San Diego!


The San Diego Harp Society was formed to support, enhance and cultivate the local harp community in the southern California region. A local chapter of the American Harp Society, the SDHS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with members consisting of active professional & semi-professional harpists, harp teachers, harp lovers and students of all ages! 

If you play, teach, study, research, or simply enjoy the harp, the San Diego Harp Society is for you!  We welcome harpists of all styles and genres — lever or pedal, historical or modern. There is a place for you here! 

Our purpose and mission is to celebrate the harp legacy, inspire musical excellence, and empower the next generation of harp players throughout San Diego.  We hope you will join us in supporting our mission!
