Olivia is a London based harpist. If you send her a piece of harp music by no later than midnight (UK time), she'll put up a performance on Instagram and her own website by 5 pm the next day, and she will also give you feedback. One condition: it can only be 15 seconds long.

Harp is an often misunderstood instrument to write for so this is an excellent and fun opportunity to learn more about writing for harp (what works, what doesn't, specific techniques like glissandi, etc.).
