On Wednesday evening last the Sonas Harp Ensemble were featured performers at an international conference event promoted in Drogheda by NASCO.

The Carroll School of Harp ensemble got to perform to an international audience, meet government ministers and were even featured on the RTE evening news.

NASCO is holding this international conference in Ireland for the first time and couldn’t have been more pleased with the harpists.
