IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT HARPS
Harps are precious, valuable and fragile instruments and have a few specific needs in regards to environmental factors. Some things you need to consider include:
- The harp must not get wet or damp under any circumstances. If you engage Emily to play at your event, you must have a contingency plan for inclement weather. She will not be able to play outside if it is raining, or if rain is likely unless adequate shelter is provided.
- The harp must not be placed in a very hot environment and preferably not in direct sunlight on a very hot day as this can cause damage to the instrument along with causing problems with tuning.
- The harp needs to be placed on a flat, dry, clean, firm, level (non-sloping) and stable surface; you will need to ensure this is provided.
- If it is windy and the harp is outside, the wind can make a noise as it resonates through the harp. It may not be a noise you expect to hear and can be reasonably loud. Good to be aware of so that you don’t get a surprise!
- If there are multiple or high steps to access the performance space, then Emily will need a hand to get the harp into place as it is heavy and hard to move alone on difficult terrain.
