Welcome to the NC Harp Ensemble! We have three different levels of ensembles (Concert, Advanced and New Artist) that combine to make the full ensemble. Please review the requirements for these ensembles. All rehearsals are held at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem unless there is a scheduling conflict with our usual rehearsal location. Rehearsals are then relocated to the Clubhouse at Deep River Plantation in Greensboro. All members are expected to participate in all rehearsals and performances. If an emergency situation arises that will cause you to be absent or tardy, please contact Ensemble Manager, Grace Ludtke. All members are expected to bring their harp, bench, black Manhasset style music stand, and music organized in a black binder to each rehearsal/performance.
