Welcome harpists and harp enthusiasts to the Washington DC Chapter of the American Harp Society. We maintain this site for you, to provide you with updated information regarding DC-area harp events and a variety of harp resources. The mission of AHS/DC is aligned with that of the American Harp Society. Our aim is to promote and foster the appreciation of the harp as a musical instrument, to encourage the composition of music for the harp, and to improve the quality of performance of harpists. Our emphasis is on Washington, DC, a vibrant area for the performing arts. That said, we hope to promote the harp well beyond our home city through cooperation with our national society, our sister chapters, and other like-minded organizations.
