Harpist attends Dunhurst

Posted on 18th November 2016

Bedales Prep School Dunhurst had a visit from professional harpist, Olivia Jageurs on Friday last week. Music award holders spent the morning learning about contemporary harp techniques and the intricacies of harp pedals before composing their own music for Olivia and baritone singer Philip Guy-Bromley to perform in front of the whole school later in the afternoon. Head of Music, Ben Harlan said “It was a truly memorable day”. Olivia runs a scheme called 15 second harp in which she encourages composers of any age and ability to write a fifteen second piece for her to play, record and upload onto Instagram.
