COVID-19 Precautions and Guidelines

We will follow guidance from the Welsh Government at all times. Masks and pre-session testing will not be required during the 10 week workshops this term. If this makes attending prohibitive for anyone wishing to join please email me on info@harpwales.com so I can do my very best to accommodate your needs.

The Dynamic Harps Virtual Ensemble

Whether you sign up or not, you are also invited to attend our online Dynamic Harps Virtual Ensemble sessions. We meet on the first Tuesday of every month 8pm-9.30pm.

Commitment 

Please remember that each term you are expected to commit to the concerts and to attend a minimum 8 of 10 sessions, this is so we can learn our parts, learn to perform within the ensemble and then be there on the concert day to play our parts so that the balance within the pieces works well.  Life can very easily creep up on us with unexpected happenings. Please let me know if you already know you are unable to attend any of the concerts.

I totally understand last minute changes, but if you already know you are unable to attend at least 8 rehearsals and/or the concerts this term please let me know as you may need to have a break and re-join us next term. We have to think of the whole group and all the hard work everyone puts in, to make sure we respect one another and our wonderful music making. 

Times: Dynamic Harps on Monday Daytime sessions will run from 12.45pm to 2.45pm and the evenings will run from 6.45pm – 8.45pm. Please arrive to set up and tune 15 minutes before hand in time to be ready to play at the start time. If you are not tuned and ready when we start, please can you set up outside the room and join us once you are ready to make sure we can all get the most from our sessions.

What to bring to sessions: Harp, music Stand, harp stool (or there are normal chairs to use at venue), tuning equipment, spare strings if you have them, ensemble music file (which you will be given at the first session), pencil, rubber. Please where possible clearly mark your equipment with your name.

What next? From now on, all payments will be taken online, please visit this page to pay for the 10 sessions to secure your place. I would also love an enrolment form filled in for the first official session of term, I will bring them along to our first session for you to fill out.

The cost: The cost to attend the ensemble for a term is usually £185, due to the missed session last term the fee is £166.05. This of course includes your access to the online Dynamic Harps Virtual Ensemble materials too (which can be accessed for free by anyone). I have not included lunch for the Insole Court Day, If you would like to pay to have a buffet lunch that day you are most welcome to, I will share details and send out payment options ASAP.
