What is FBP?
The Future Blend Project launched in 2015.
It is a annual competition that brings composers and harpists together to create brand new music for the Harp.
10 finalists are chosen from annonymous scores, they then have 5 months to work with their harpist to create the best piece possible for the instrument.
The Hidden Gem Concert in the first week of January is the showcase and World Premier of these 10 new works.
'FBP' helps to increase the amount of music composed for the harp and is inspired by the difficult path young professional musicians and composers face in order to succeed in the music industry.
