The 17th International Harp Contest in Israel will be held in October. Elizabeth Jaxon is an American musician living in Paris, and preparing to compete. She has been writing a blog about her preparations and reflections on life and music. It is well-written and includes pictures and stories about Paris. I have been enjoying her insights and witty style. This is just about the biggest harp contest there is, but it would be interesting to anyone who has ever dreamed of entering a music performance competition of any kind.
