A Message From Our President

Happy fall! The weather might still feel like summer, but school and concert seasons are back in full swing.  Good luck to all of our local harp students who will be participating in region auditions, fall orchestra concerts, and Texas All-State taping this month! Speaking of our amazing students, we are still seeking a new chairperson for the Mildred Milligan Competition next year.  If you are interested in helping to run this fantastic event for our students, let me know and I can give you all the details. I encourage everyone to send in your membership dues, and get involved in our growing community.  Please email our secretary with pictures from recent events, and send your upcoming performances so they can be included in the Glissando.

Two Chapter Reminders
This is a reminder that membership for the GHC runs from September 1–August 31 and all memberships expire on September 1, 2019. All paid chapter members are able to post their harps and accessories for sale or rent on our website www.houstonharpists.com and in our monthly newsletter. You can also post a harp teacher listing, pictures, and upcoming harp events on our site. Thank you for supporting our chapter!
Are you looking to get more involved in the Houston chapter of the American Harp Society? The GHC board is looking for someone interested in heading up the 2021 Milligan Competition. Ideally, this person would be able to help plan the spring 2020 student chapter recital. The Milligan chairperson would receive the support of the board, the former Milligan chair, and a committee of his or her choosing. 
Contact hope.k.cowan@gmail.com if you want to learn more or would like to get involved.
