The Chattanooga Harp Ensemble was created in 2005 to bring together harpists in the Chattanooga geographical area to inspire and support one another. If you desire to begin a harp ensemble in your area we will be glad to share our experience with you.

Why join the harp ensemble? To share the passion of playing the harp in a relaxed group setting.

Who should join the harp ensemble?  Beginner to Advanced Harpists can take part in the ensemble since the repertoire offers different degrees of difficulty.

What kind of music does the harp ensemble play? We will focus on Celtic, folk, and holiday music for 2017-2018. Performances are free and open to the public. 

The Chattanooga Harp Ensemble rehearsals are the second Sunday of the month from 2 - 4 pm at the JPG Harp Connections Studio, 703 Courtney Lane, Chattanooga TN. Harpists of all levels are invited to participate in the harp ensemble.

Where do members get the ensemble music?  We collect our music on our Drop Box which is available to all members.


Music For Healing

Some members of The Chattanooga Harp Ensemble are participating in a program called Music for Healing where they are sent to various hospitals, therapy centers, nursing homes, and other medical facilities. While not considered active "music therapy," our intention for this program is to help improve the lives of the patients and caregivers by providing soothing music to help raise the spirits and calm the nerves of those hearing the performances.
