"For the last seven years, the Saratoga Harp Colony
has been not only the highlight of my summer, but a powerful, positive
force in my development as a musician and performer. The unique
opportunity to truly focus on practicing and performance in such
a beautiful setting is unlike any other experience. Inspiration
is abundant, as participants take in Philadelphia Orchestra concerts
and learn from the amazing faculty members, guest adjudicators,
and each other! Masterclasses, mock auditions, and ensemble performances
create a truly collaborative, synergistic atmosphere for learning.
I always leave Saratoga Springs with a sense of elation from the
wonderful music I've heard and played, excited to apply new ideas
and skills to my own practice and performances."
