The International Harp Contest in Israel returns to the stage! It is time to acknowledge the new Israeli work for the 21st Harp Contest.
Dear Contestants & Friends,
Following our previous announcement and in reply to some of your good questions regarding the Covid-19 virus pandemic, we would like to advise as follows:
With Kind regards,
Yossi Frost, Director
After the success of the 20th Contest that took place in 2018 in Acre, the 21st Harp Contest will return to Acre, to the magnificent Knights’ Halls in Old Acre (Akko), a city declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
“Suite for Harp” by Avner Dorman is the commissioned Israeli work for the 21st Contest. The Propes Prize is granted for the best performance of this piece.
The First Prize, a Lyon & Healy Gold Concert Grand Harp, valued at US$ 55,000 donated by the Salvi Foundation following the good tradition since the First Contest in 1959.
Looking forward to greeting you all in Israel, in October 2021!
