Due to coronavirus measures, the 2020 session competition is canceled ! Here is the official announcement

It is with great sadness that we must announce the cancellation of the organization of the Félix Godefroid International Harp Competition.

This decision is certainly dictated by the extent of the virus and its consequences at international level, the measures taken by local authorities, but also by the concern for the health of candidates, the public, volunteers, …

We are aware of the consequences that this implies and we are deeply sorry for it…

We hope to postpone the event as soon as possible and will keep you posted as soon as the new dates are decided.

We ask you to believe in our sincere support and wish you much courage, both personally and professionally, for the coming weeks.

An email will be sent to the candidates during the day.

 See you soon ! We look forward to meeting you in Tournai! We will prepare for you a beautiful event motivated by the love of the harp, youth and Music that drives us all.
