Entry Form, Categories and Entry Requirements

Una Morgan Harp Competition

The Una Morgan competition is run by HSQ and open to all ages and levels of harpists who are members of HSQ. It is an opportunity to perform in a competitive yet encouraging environment, fostering confidence in performance, and constructive feedback. It is also a good opportunity to meet other harpists in the community. 

 

This year the wonderful Domenica Musumeci from Geneva will be adjudicating the competition. Domenica studied with Sebastien Lipman at the QLD Conservatorium and is now a Professor at the Conservatoire de Musique de Geneve.

 

If you are feeling competitive, or just want to play to an audience and meet other harpists, I would encourage you to enter. It is a great opportunity to give harp players the benefit of a large and welcoming audience and the experience of professional harp competition.


It would be fantastic to see more new faces at the competition this year, so enter today!
