Hong Kong Harp Festival & Charity Harp Marathon

FOTH's establishment was inspired by the unprecedented support for the Hong Kong Harp Festival (HarpFest). The HarpFest is a 2-4 week festival of harp performances and activities taking place in a public venue making the harp and harp music accessible to the community.  The finale of the HarpFest is an all-day Charitable Live Harp Marathon that has received overwhelming response from the local and overseas harp community, including over 100 professional and amateur harpists, young children and families, the public media and the community at large.

The first HarpFest was held in April 2006. HarpFest 2006 and 2007 have raised over HK$600,000 in donations for selected benefitiaries. With the donation from HarpFest 06, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Hong Kong (a member of the Hong Kong Council of Social Service) was enabled to establish the first Music Therapy Treatment Program (Music Rejoice Center) for elderly citizens in HK. Funds raised in HarpFest 07 were donated to Medecins Sans Frontieres, providing emergency medical aid to the needy.

HARPFEST 2008 coincided with the first Asian HarpFest.  GOTO ASIAN HARP FESTIVAL PAGE for details. We had overseas harp performers and participants from Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan, also professional guest performers from different Asian Region and the USA. This website does not provide Harpfest information beyond 2008.
