The Midwest Harp Festival held at the University of Tulsa, in Tulsa, Oklahoma features intensive summer harp study for students of all ages as well as a competition. On of my former adult students Linda Goodman of Austin, TX placed first in the Advanced I division in the 2017 Midwest Harp Festival Solo Competition. Linda is pictured above (2nd from right) at the winners recital after performing Marcel Tournier’s Au Matin.
