The Harp Society of New Zealand has been running since the mid 1980s, with the first journal being published in 1987. We publish three interesting and informative journals per year, have a website which is regularly updated with events, a list of teachers, harp makers and stockists, as well as performers from around the country and more. Members have a Members Space on the website which includes access to a members directory, journal archives, featured sheet music, and more.
We offer grants for our members, and some assistance for visiting harpists.
We really want to be able to be in contact with harp players, makers and enthusiasts from all over NZ so we can let them know about upcoming events and visiting harp makers and performers. You can get in touch with us through the NZHS website.
We are a relatively small harp society with approximately 170 members spread across New Zealand and overseas. The majority of our members are lever harp players with increasing numbers of pedal harpists.
