Looking for the perfect excuse to take a Summer Sunday drive into the country? How about a delicious lunch followed with an incredible concert by CISHI’s Faculty?

Hop in your car in Edmonton or Calgary at 10 a.m. for a leisurely drive to Caroline, Alberta to arrive comfortably in time for a beautiful day of harp music, inspiration and camaraderie. Lunch will be served at 12:30 in the Dining Hall of Sanctum Retreat Centre providing you an opportunity to savor the culinary expertise of the Sanctum team. After lunch, take some time to explore the grounds of Sanctum, wander along the Raven River or through the forest pathways breathing in the pure air and spirit of this unique place. The concert then begins at 2:30 in the chapel of Sanctum, a beautiful, light-filled intimate space.

CISHI 2016

CISHI 2016

This year’s programme includes solo classical and jazz performances by the faculty, along with some ensembles and improv. Those who attended in past years know they will be treated to an artistic, joyful and creative afternoon offered by these great artists and friends.


This is a public, ticketed event so family, friends, harp aficionados will have the opportunity to attend as well as, of course all registered CISHI 2018 students. Purchase of a ticket includes lunch at 12:30 at Sanctum Retreat Centre, just outside of Caroline Alberta.

Lunch and Concert price is $50/$35 (adult/child) It’s an intimate venue so there are only 45 tickets available – first come, first served.

For those who would like to enjoy a bit more of the CISHI experience, you can also stay for dinner and attend an evening workshop with Judy, Julia and Gianetta. We’ll be sharing our experience and suggestions on how to make the most of your practice time and performance prep. And if you’d like to play and get some feedback on how to work on a specific issue, here’s your chance. The workshop will finish at 8 p.m. so you can still get home before dark. Price for the Lunch/Concert/Dinner/Masterclass is $100.

Clicking on the buttons below will give you the option to purchase your tickets by credit card or paypal. A list of paid reservations will be kept at Sanctum for confirmation when you arrive. Please bring a copy of your email confirmation as well (don’t forget to check your Spam mailbox if you don’t seem to have received a confirmation email!).
