of the Association
HARPE EN AVESNOIS
The association HARPE EN AVESNOIS was
created in 1992 on Doctor Jean Duprey 's initiative, with
the assistance of parents of pupils studying the harp at
the Academy of Maubeuge.
The purpose of the association HARPE EN
AVESNOIS is to promote the Harp in all its forms,
showcasing young harpists as well as experienced artists,
while highlighting the Sambre - Avesnois – Hainaut region.
From its inception, the association HARPE
EN AVESNOIS created a Master Class at the Castle of
Gussignies. The first Master Class was given by Mrs
Susanna Mildonian, godmother of the association. We would
like to thank CAMAC
and SALVI ,
harp manufacturers, for their assistance in this
Since 1994, the association HARPE EN
AVESNOIS has organized the annual Festival of Harp, held
throughout the Sambre - Avesnois – Hainaut region. This
festival takes place each year in February.
