Every summer the American Harp Society hosts national gatherings. The National Conference, held in even-numbered years, features concerts by brilliant artists from around the world, workshops on wide-ranging topics, masterclasses with world-class teachers, and scholarly lectures to feed your intellectual soul, as well as an exhibit hall with a dizzying array of harps and related items.

The Summer Institute, held in odd-numbered years, focuses on the student harpist and their teachers with workshops, masterclasses, and concerts by the best performers and pedagogues in the world. The Summer Institute is held in conjunction with AHS National Competition, where dazzling young harpists compete for awards and scholarships.

Regions and local chapters also present numerous exciting events throughout the year which may be found on the calendar below.
