In the year 1720, European harp-maker Jacob Hochbrucker invented the pedal mechanism. This is a significant moment in harp history, which brings Concert Grand Harp on stage. Various forms of early-harp prototypes can be found throughout the history of most countries. These instruments relate deeply to the unique identity of each culture. Yet our common qualities should evoke a sense of connection and harmony that reminds everyone of the importance of building a stereotypes-free society where neither music nor people are limited in self-expression.
The main goal of the World Harp Day is to create a fertile ground for cultural dialogue: this new tradition shall become a reminder of peace and unity to all countries, and a source of inspiration for the development of the harp as a diplomatic symbol of art, health, and solidarity in addition to a magnificent musical instrument.
