    As many of you know World Harp Congress 2017 is in Hong Kong, it should be a wonderful experience for those lucky enough to  be able to attend.

    Planning is already starting for the 2020 WHC and bids are going in as to where it will be hosted and this is influenced by voting (which you are invited to do) but you need to sign your support of location by 20th of July.   

    Here is a website for the first bid I know of, please feel free to add others by commenting on the post:

    I believe Berlin may also be bidding but have not found a link to the bid yet.

    Thanks to Anna Dunwoodie for the above information on the bidding.

    Some of our local Alliance Française organizations are looking for artists (amatuer and professional) to get out and play!  Although you by no means need to go through them, to get out and about.

    Here are a couple of links to follow based on geographic area, if I didn't cover your area please feel free to add a news item with the information!

    Our website will be getting a bit of an upgrade on the 11th-12th of December.   There may be a hiccup or two during this time, hopefully not, but just letting people know just in case.

    One of the new features will be a site "search" capability.  It will search only public pages, forums and news for non-members or those who have not logged in, and will search all (public and members only) pages, forums and news for those who have logged in.

    Also added will be the ability to log in using either facebook or google+.
