SONG & SESSION WEEK June 15th - 21st
(Residents from Sunday 14th – 21st)
6 days of training with half days on Wednesday and Saturday. Days
start at 9.30am (10am on Thursday) with group drills. After coffee,
there is a song or session workshop at 11.30-12.30pm. Classes
again from 2-3, and finally a Full Session from 3-4pm. Then, time
off to walk, relax or practise. After dinner at 7pm, evening activities
include dancing, (trad and folk) sessions and a concert on the final
day for parents and friends. The special emphasis for this week is on
the ART OF ACCOMPANIMENT – working with chords and creating
arrangements while also building confidence and repertoire. These
are essential skills for singers and self-accompanists, for performers
working with other instrumentalists and for becoming skilled in session
accompaniment.
ALL AGES AND STAGES 1
July 13th - 18th
Including a special course for juniors (age 8 – 11).
ALL AGES AND STAGES 2 July 20th - 25th

(Residents from Sunday 12th – 19th and 19th to 26th respectively)
Both of these summerschools feature 6 days of training with an
afternoon off on Wednesday or Thursday (weather permitting!) to have
an adventure to a place of local interest! Days start at 9.30am (10am
on Thursday) with a group session. After coffee, classes resume to
lunchtime at 1pm. At 2pm, Janet will give a concert exploring the
different ‘Arts of Harping’, from the historical repertoire of the
Connellans and Carolan to the modern composers; and from slow airs
and lamentations to modern dance music. Classes again to 4pm. Then,
time off to walk, relax, practise or have supplementary one-on-one
lessons. Dinner at 7pm; with evening activities from 9.30pm including
concerts, dancing, folk and trad sessions. Mid week outing is to Lough
Gur and the Great Stone Circle at Grange. A trip to Bunratty Castle
is offered with potential attendance at the famous medieval Bunratty
Banquet for a great night’s experience (at an extra cost). Saturday
afternoon is free to explore the city or nearby Adare (or practise!) while
the final evening activities start at 5pm with our summerschool concert
and barbeque in the garden. On Sunday mornings, all are invited to
join Janet at the local church for some spiritual recuperation at Sunday
mass (all instruments are welcome to participate).
BRIAN BORU
Irish HARP
ORCHESTRA
FESTival Limerick, August 17th - 22nd
(Residents from August 16th – 23rd )
Performing the Janet Harbison’s production:
“Brian Boru, Lion of Ireland”
with choirs and the Limerick Bagpipe Band
at St.Mary’s Cathedral on Saturday
August 22nd, at 8pm.
Following on from our 2014 Brian Boru Millennium year,
this festive week will be the first of our continuing
Brian Boru Harp Festivals in Limerick – with rehearsals at the
Harp Centre and then concerts with the big one at St.Mary’s
Cathedral on the 22nd.
Join the Irish Harp Orchestra for a week of rehearsals and concerts with
a fun evening programme of dancing and sessions. This summerschool
is about STAGECRAFT, developing confidence in performing in public,
collaborating with other players and being part of a large-scale concert
production under the experienced directorship of Janet Harbison.
Guest harp schools and ensembles are invited to perform in the first
half of each concert.
PREPARATION: On booking, if we don’t already know you and you are
uncertain about which parts to play, you will be invited to have a ‘Skype’
audition to find the right part for you; and we will then send you your
score(s) to do some preparation in advance of the week.
The Irish Harp Centre presents its acclaimed summer schools’
programme in Castleconnell, County Limerick, one of Ireland’s loveliest
heritage-steeped villages and most scenic areas of the Shannon river. It
is located just 30 minutes from Shannon Airport and easily accessed by
road, bus and train from Limerick, Dublin, Cork and Galway.
The Irish Harp Centre, established in 2002 by Dr Janet Harbison,
serves over 100 harp students in a year-round programme of tuition with
residential courses of weekends, weeks, months and trimesters offering
leisure and professional training for performers, teachers, entertainers,
ceremonial players and palliative therapists. With concert groups
rehearsing, and workshops and masterclasses happening regularly, our
summer school programme offers a window into this busy cultural arts
centre.
The Irish Harp College is the training system developed by Dr Harbison
over a long career of teaching and stage-training students and colleagues
mainly for her harp orchestra which allowed the harp to achieve a concert
audience from the 1980s. Much has evolved in Irish musicianship
since this time and when most of her students at first came from rich
traditional music backgrounds, today they largely come from very mixed
and uninvolved backgrounds. The Irish Harp College teaching method has
addressed these changes creating a system that teaches players to be
creative and spontaneous as well as technically skilled and literate (after
fluency with the music).
Dr Janet Harbison has been a prominent figure
in Irish musical life and harping for over 40 years.
She is the founder and director of the Irish Harp
College managing a network of teachers and
harp centres in Ireland and across the northern
hemisphere. She is also an active recitalist,
academic, teacher, composer and founding
director of the multi-award winning Irish and
National Harp Orchestras.
