CYHE was formed in 2016 to provide an opportunity for young harpists in the county to take part in advanced level ensemble work. The ensemble is aimed at pedal harpists of Grade 6 and above, and members are also able to take membership with and perform with the County Youth Orchestra.
Repertoire so far has included Venezolana by Alfredo Rolando Ortiz as their inaugural performance, a wide range of duet, trio, quartet and quintet arrangements for performance in 2018 and further quartet arrangements from the Nutcracker Suite and other ballets in 2019.
The ensemble members from 2019/20 have also been invited to perform at the World Harp Congress in Cardiff in 2022, postponed from 2020.
2020 brought the ensemble together virtually, with a blended ensemble recording as part of the County Youth Music celebration presentation for their Christmas concert, and we hope to be able to bring the ensemble back together in person for the 2021 – 2022 season.
If you are interested in becoming a member of this ensemble, please contact Cambridgeshire Music in the first instance to enquire about suitability, as the repertoire covered is currently only suitable for pedal harp.
