Harps

The North London Festival is delighted to announce the United Kingdom Harp Association as sponsors of the harp competitions at the North London Festival in 2022. As part of this involvement, the former Camac Harp Competition has been renamed as the United Kingdom Harp Competition and an additional prize has been kindly donated by Sioned Williams, the UKHA President.

Classes 602 to 607 – Harp Competitions on Monday 2 May – generously supported by United Kingdom Harp Association

We are still finalising details of the harp competitions, but the information below gives the dates of the competitions and some idea about them.

The harp competitions will be held in North Bank Rooms, Muswell Hill Methodist Church

Entrants for any of the harp competitions should be studying or resident in the United Kingdom or Ireland and must provide the adjudicator with a clean copy of the music for each work to be performed. For competitions 602—605 pieces performed can be chosen from the current ABRSM or TCL grade lists or be an own choice piece of the same standard. Classes are open to lever and pedal harpists.

If an entrant has been a pupil of the Adjudicator in the year prior to the Festival or is well-known to the Adjudicator, they should contact the Section Head before entering.

Enter online via the Festival’s website Closing Date – Friday 8 April

Where entry depends on age, it is the age on 1st September 2021 so that all the entrants in a class are in the same school year.

Harpists are eligible to enter string competitions and may be interested in performing their own compositions.

Harp chamber ensemble competitions will this year be combined with string chamber music competitions. Non-classical harpists should look at the folk music classes, 514 and 515. Both these competitions can be found in the Chamber Music, Ensemble and Folk Music Syllabus.

In 2021 we introduced a new system for entries. Please click on the link below for how to apply. The first time that you use the new entry system, you will need to register.

The closing date for harp classes will be Friday 8 April 2022

CAMAC COMPETITION 2020

We had to cancel our competitions in London in May 2020 because of the Covid-19 crisis – but offered a video competition instead. This is the first time we have run such a contest, and it went viral in more than one sense of the word! With over 170 entries across the board, we have been thrilled by the response. Huge thanks go to our jurors, Caryl Thomas and Sally Pryce, who have certainly been kept busy! Click on the ‘Read More’ button for full results.
