The Harplounge provides a wonderful opportunity for informal public performance. It will be located right on beautiful Sydney Harbour in the Sydney Dance Cafe, where there will be one lever harp and one pedal harp provided in a designated staging area, from breakfast until dusk.
Advanced players and professionals attending the WHC are invited to perform a free choice program in the inclusive, club style environment of the Harplounge, while the general public and WHC registrants enjoy food, drinks and live harp music. There will be a sign up sheet at the venue for performers to write in their names for a 20 minute slot during the daytime, and you may perform here regardless of whether or not you will be performing in the main program.
We also invite you to attend the evening performances, where there will be an exciting array of distinctive and often risk-taking international acts for you to enjoy!
