Planning is well underway and registration is now open. Can’t wait to see old friends and to welcome new ones into the CISHI family!
Busy day today with 8 harps moving up to Sanctum to await the arrival of students and faculty tomorrow. Rehearsing this afternoon with Judy and Julia for the faculty concert on Sunday. Listening to Judy practicing this morning, I’m blown away by not only her classics but hearing her working on her improv for In the Mood was amazing!
Get ready for an amazing faculty concert! Pieces confirmed so far are Judy performing part of Schafer’s Crown of Ariadne and Salzedo’s Ballade and Gianetta playing Faure’s Impromptu. Those who attended CISHI 2014 will be excited to know that 3/4 of the Harp Chicks ensemble (ie. Judy, Julia and Gianetta) will be improvising in Julia’s own arrangements of In the Mood and Heart and Soul!
This will be a public, ticketed event so family, friends, harp afficionados will have the opportunity to attend as well as, of course all registered CISHI 2017 students.
It’s an intimate venue so there will only be 45 tickets available – first come, first served. Process for purchase of tickets will be announced by mid-June.
We have now finalized the dates for the 2017 CISHI program – July 21-28, 2017. Program and Registration pages will be updated with full details as soon as possible. Student registration opens January 1st, 2017. Stay tuned for more exciting updates as they come in!
