    From one of our members, Kemp Reweti (after his winning entry to the NZ Harp Performance Competition - see our youtube channel for Kemp, and 35+ other performances from 2015 and 2016)
    FYI - For those of us without TV, they show The Hui on TV on Demand.
    Hi Anna, I don't know if your interested or if members of the harp community are. But I'm lucky enough to be on TV3 show tomorrow called the Hui at 9.30am sharing a bit about my harp journey. I posted a video on my Facebook page of my competition piece and it went a bit crazy so they got in touch with me and are running a story on The Hui tv3 show tomorrow. Just wanted to let you know. Cheers, Kemp.

    Below you will find a brochure for Summer Harp Week 2017 (click the button).  The brochure includes both information about the week and the registration form.  It sounds like a great opportunity to enjoy the Kapiti coast in the summer,  the company of other harpists and to progress your playing!

    Here’s some exciting news from your executive committee of NZ Harp Society:

    We are delighted to announce the application process for four grants of $150 each, in every calendar year.

    The four grants are open to every NZ Harp Society member, and two of the grants are specifically reserved for under 18 year olds.

    So, young harpists (and not so young ones!)…. The NZHS wants to help you, in a tangible way, to engage in projects or activities that promote harp performance, education and awareness of the harp. 

    Get your thinking caps on about what you would like to do, and get in touch with your committee

    Membership Changes

    At the 2015 AGM of the Harp Society, members voted to increase the annual membership charge to NZ$25 per year, effective 1 July 2016. This increase applies to individual New Zealand resident members.

    A new family membership category will be available from 1 July 2016. A membership charge of NZ$30 per year covers adult and child members (limited to children in primary, secondary or tertiary education) of one family who wish to be harp society members.   Each family membership is entitled to one physical journal.  However each family member can have their own membership log-in (and profile) on the Harp Society website and each receive the journal via email.

    If you are current members and desire to switch to the family membership, or have any queries regarding membership, please contact Becky.
