The World of Harps

The World of Harps

In this assembly, students will see and hear harps from different continents and world cultures. Harps make magical sounds! They also tell stories, spark imaginations, carry history from one generation to another, and illustrate universal concepts in music and science. During the assembly students listen to harp music, hear harp stories, sing, try new vocabulary, solve problems, and ask questions. Holly plays multiple harps, weaves in fun facts and surprises, and answers questions about her adventures in harp life! Assemblies can be included in your day of Hands-On Harp workshops (see separate “Hands-On Harps” page). You can even showcase some of your students playing their own harps in an assembly at the end of the day. Or book a whole day of assemblies for different age groups or different buildings in your district.
