Harp Dreams wins 3 regional Emmys as well as the prestigious CINE Golden Eagle Award
Harp Dreams, the WTIU-produced documentary of the 2007 competition, showcases the best young harpists in the world as they prepare for a high-stakes ten-day event held every three years at the Jacobs School of Music on the Bloomington campus of Indiana University. The documentary is a celebration of contestants from around the world and, ultimately, the competition itself.
The 10th USA International Harp Competition (USAIHC) will take place June 8-18, 2016 in Bloomington, Indiana. It is open to harpists of all nationalities between the ages of 18 and 32. The age qualifying date is the first day of the month of the Competition, 2016. Acceptance will be based upon submitted application materials which will be reviewed by a selection committee.
The USAIHC offers automatic acceptance to the First Prize Winners in the highest division of other International Harp Competitions held since July 21, 2013, providing that the winner meets the 10th Competition's age requirement. The automatically accepted contestant will not be required to submit a DVD of the individual performing Stage I repertoire. However, the automatically accepted First Prize winner must furnish all other listed materials in the Application Procedures, including the application fee, and remains responsible for his or her transportation and other expenses.
The Jury will consist of internationally recognized harpists, teachers and musicians. All decisions of the Jury are final. The Jury is chaired by a President whose role is to direct the overall conduct and operation of the Jury and to assure that the Jury adheres to all Competition rules and procedures.
