Holiday Harp Extravaganza 2023
Saturday, December 16, 2023, 11:00am - 01:00pm


Continuing our beloved tradition!

Each December, harpers and harpists from all over Southern California (all ages, all levels from beginner to professional) gather to play Christmas, Hanukkah and general-interest music for patients, staff and guests in the lobby of the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena. Performers are strongly encouraged to be members of AHS-LA; join or renew here!

Once again, our tireless Extravaganza Music Director Elaine Litster will conduct this spectacular ensemble.

All PERFORMERS meet between 11 and 11:15 AM to set up and have a quick talk-through rehearsal. 

The performance is at 12 noon.

It is free for performers and attendees; performers get one free parking pass each
(there is a $6 parking fee for non-performing listeners).

PERFORMERS bring your own harp, stool/bench/chair, music stand and music. The music is arranged for one to four harps; select whichever part you like. Feel free to play one or both hands as ability allows. It is not necessary to play every song; just those you are comfortable with. 

See a 1-minute video from the 2013 extravaganza here.

Teachers and performers, please remember that all the arrangements/publications being played are protected by copyright. When you buy a PDF, it is for your own use only; it's neither legal, nice to the arrangers, to give out extra copies, even for free. Thank you!
