And a very happy new year!
I'm all carol-ed out and it's now it's time to waltz into the new year, and an interesting one it will be with the economic climate being what it is, and seeing how that pans out for all those who work in the Arts.
Being a freelance musician for nearly 20 years, I'm well used to diversifying and being creative is the key (I think) to getting through this difficult time.
So my latest project for the new year is harp lessons over the internet via Skype.
I've got a new website www.iHarp.info with lots of information on there, I've also filmed a few videos for it and I'll be adding lots more to it in due course.
Here's to good health and happiness in the year ahead. x
If you are in London on the 26th January 2011, then you should definitely go to see an exciting concert featuring the first public performance of the first concerto for midi harp performed (and commissioned) by Sioned Williams with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
Composed by Graham Fitkin it will certainly be a really fascinating concert.
And the concert is free, but you need to book tickets ASAP via the BBC.
Details on how to book tickets below.
It is also being broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on 1st February.
A real shame it's only on radio and not being filmed for future broadcast on TV, as it's a concert with some significant firsts on this new instrument by Camac.
Lauren Scott is a harpist & composer and has been blogging on Harpyness for over 10 years.
If you enjoy reading Harpyness and you'd like to buy me a virtual coffee that would be very welcome. Cheers!
