Summer plans are underway–it's going to be a great year!

Spring is in the air, and YAHS 2014 will be here before you know it! Although our application deadline has passed, we are still taking applications for our YAHS waiting list. Spaces sometimes open at the last minute so we encourage you to apply if you are still interested in attending this year. Spaces are still available for our new Prep Division program for lever and pedal harp—no audition is required. We've also added a Prep Division for lever and pedal harp to the Young Artist's Harp Competition. Whichever division you are entering, don't forget our May 1 entry deadline, and be sure to email in advance for approval of your free choice piece.
