HARPS WITHOUT BORDERS is this year’s theme for the Dutch Harp Festival, set to take place for the fourth time this October 15th and 16th, 2016, in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Under the direction of harpist Remy van Kesteren, this year’s festival promises to outdo itself once again. Join in the musical celebration, where great music, regardless of genre, rules.
Coming to the “Dom City” this fall, the best harpists from around the world – together with Holland’s most outstanding musical talent – will share their vision for the future of the harp, bringing listeners the very best of pop, classical, jazz, electronic dance, folk, improvisation, and world music.
The program includes Catrin Finch, Zeena Parkins (harpist with Björk), Remy van Kesteren himself and his band, a DJ club night, the Holland Baroque ensemble, Sivan Magen, the Netherlands Youth Jazz Orchestra, Marie-Pierre Langlamet, Martin Fondse, children’s shows and dance concerts, Savourna Stevenson, the Danel Quartet… And these are just the first names!
