About the International Harp Competition in Szeged
Founded in 2007 and held every three years, the International Harp Competition in Szeged, Hungary has become a recognized harp contest, a social and cultural event not only for the harpists but also for the audience who enjoys harp music and is excited to hear performers from all over the world. The aim of this project is to discover new young talented harpists, help all participants to discover new horizons in their musical profession and stimulate the development of harp culture in Hungary.
I am delighted to invite harpists from all over the world to take part in 3rd International Harp Competition in Szeged, which is opened to young harpists in three age categories and will take place from 28 November to 1 December 2013. It is dedicated to the memory of Richárd Weninger, a passionate musician, harpist and conductor, who played a significant role in the musical life of Hungary.
