It looks like it's going to be an amazing World Harp Congress in Vancouver in a couple of weeks!
As much as I would love to go, I must confess I've never been to a harp congress.
Although I have been to a saxophone congress in Slovenia where I learnt how they made saxophone reeds from scratch, and a Jazz conference in New York where I was nearly mown down by a bunch of enthusiastic jazz supporters running into a concert room trying to get the best seats (don't ask!!!).
Work commitments make it impossible to get away at this time of year, but having looked at the schedule for this conference coming up there are loads of performances I really wish I could go to.
I am really disappointed I won't get to see the performance by Park Stickney and Rudiger Oppermann.
Their CD, Harp Summit is one of my favourite harp recordings. The opening track, Cool Harmonics with its incredible descending chromatic bass lines and stunning harmonics is a track which makes me go "WOW" each and every time I hear it. My favourite though is Conscious Streaming which for some reason nearly brings me to tears each time.
Fingers crossed I can make the next congress, and hopefully see them play live at some point.
