Ensemble Telyn Cymru

ETC is part of WHC2022's outreach programme. The Ensemble is formed of young harpists from all over Wales who will rehearse locally and then perform together at the Congress on 24 July 2022.

Meinir Heulyn, who coordinated the 100 Harps performance at the WMC for the European Harp Symposium in 2007, is the Musical Director of the Ensemble, and will be collaborating with harp teachers throughout Wales to prepare for the performance.


If you are a pedal or lever harpist of Grade IV and above, living in Wales, and would like to be involved in ETC, please email info@whc2022.wales and we'll put you in touch with one of the leaders listed below.
