UKA Members Comments:

"The main concert was an amazing experience. Every performer was excellent and it certainly inspired me to persevere with the challenges the autoharp throws at me.
Other highlights for me were: the chance to meet other players from all over the U.K., the friendship and warmth, the laughs, the eating together and the encouragement more experienced players gave to beginners. It was an exhausting, brilliant and very worthwhile experience.
Most important of all, I've learned that there really is no end to the 'freedom' of exploring and developing my own style."
- Anja

"What a great experience. This was my first time seeing and playing an autoharp. The UKA Loaner 'harp was much appreciated. My Tutors Nadine and Heather were inspiring and the company encouraging. Everyone was so friendly and helpful . Great venue and beautiful setting. Thanks to all at the UKA" - Joolz
