Hangin' with the Harp

Hangin' with the Harp - Every Third Tuesday, 4PM EST

Next Hangin' with the Harp - 3/16/21

Via Zoom and Facebook



AHC would like to invite you to a harp “hang” every third Tuesday at 4PM EST. Each month you can join some of our favorite harpists for a half hour presentation followed by a 10 minute Q&A covering a variety of topics to keep you inspired and excited with the harp during these challenging times. Each live stream will also be proceeded by a brief live chat with ACH owner Mary Jane D'Arville and harpist Robbin Gordon-Cartier! Can’t make it? No problem! You can catch the replay on our Youtube channel and Facebook page.





Next Hangin' with the Harp - 3/16/21

Spontaneity for the Soul

with Amanda Whiting

on Zoom or Facebook


Join Amanda as she introduces improvisation as a path to finding your unique sound. This hang will get you off the page and give you the freedom to explore the beautiful sound of the harp no matter where you are on your harp journey.
A PDF for this session coming soon!


And be sure to tune in 10 minutes early for a pre-session open discussion with Robbin, Katie & MJ!
