Dear Harpist or Harp Lover,

Welcome to the San Diego Harp Society, local chapter of the American Harp Society!

We invite you to look around, check us out, and mark your calendars for all of the exciting concerts & events as we announce our next season!  Become a friend to the San Diego Harp Society on Facebook and please let us know how you’d like to become involved in YOUR San Diego Harp Society!

Our board is working on keeping our community connected during this unusual time of being quarantined. Still, we are planning for the remaining part of our 2019-20 season and preparing for an exciting 2020-21 season next year!  Stay in touch for announcements about upcoming concerts and events for next season!

This past September we had a very successful concert featuring Alfredo Rolando Ortiz, kicking off our season with an intimate gala fundraiser. Raising money for our Senior Scholarship program and for funding for chapter guest artists, it was a wonderful afternoon of festive music, wonderful food, and great views of the ocean!

Our annual “Mission Trails” concert took place on Sunday, March 8, 2020 where we featured advanced students from our chapter.  It was a fabulous concert and all of the performers were terrific!

This year our Annual Chapter Recital will take place online via our chapter FaceBook page. All of our students’ hard work shouldn’t be wasted, so we’re creating a way to bring our community together, viewing the performances online!   We plan on displaying video performances of our students on May 31, 2020 at 2:00pm.  We ask that all students submit a video performance of the recital piece that they were working on.  Please see our Chapter Events Page for more info & forms. Deadline for submission of videos is May 15 & May 24, 2020.

For those of you who are new, if you are not yet a member of the San Diego Harp Society, be sure to become one! Membership supports our Annual Chapter Recital, our Senior Scholarship Competition, our workshops & master classes, as well as the international guest artists on our concert season. Members receive first updates to our activities throughout the year, opportunities to perform in chapter recitals and discounts to chapter concerts and events.  To become a member, click here.

We look forward to welcoming you to all of the San Diego Harp Society events this season and beyond!
