The American Harp Society Foundation Awards

Grandjany Memorial Competition

The Grandjany Memorial Competition was established in 1979 by the American Harp Society Board and was funded by Bernard Grandjany in honor of his father Marcel Grandjany. It was enhanced by bequests from Mary Wheeler and Hermine Herbring to continue performances and appreciation of the works of Marcel Grandjany.

The award is $3,000.

In addition, the winner will receive a travel stipend to perform on a winner's recital at the American Harp Society Conference.

The dates and location of this competition will be announced shortly.
