Auditions and Evaluations is a two-day event for harp students sponsored by the American Harp Society to provide an opportunity to perform and be heard, to listen to one another, and to evaluate basic theory skills.

On Day 1, two adjudicators will listen to students perform one or two selections (not to exceed 5 minutes of total playing time) and provide written and verbal comments. Students will also fill out the theory test and performer’s worksheet on Day 1. Following Day 1 students will have two weeks to work with their private teachers on the comments received from the adjudicators. On Day 2, students will return and perform the same selections. Students will also received graded copies of their theory tests and performer’s worksheets on Day 2.
