HarpArts in Petoskey,MI


unset over Traverse Bay, Petoskey, MI

Removed from the everyday distractions of our busy adult lives, we can focus on learning: on enhancing individual musical and technical accomplishments; on sharing and performing with others; on developing contextual musical skills (history and theory), and on reflecting on the role music plays in our daily lives. Come join us at HarpArts!



We are delighted this year to be working with Mo Rave and The Terrace Inn, a lovely 41 room hybrid B & B/hotel in historic Bay View Michigan.  Call Belinda at 231-347-2410 and mention HarpArts for a special rate for HarpArts attendees.  The Terrace Inn is about 2 miles from both the AHC and Emmanuel Episcopal Church (ensembles, classes, and our concert!). There are a variety of room types available with several main floor rooms included in our choices!  Breakfast is included, and the onsite restaurant is open for dinner also. Some rooms come with small refrigerators so food options will be easy to customize. 

Petoskey is located in the heart of Northern Michigan's vacation paradise, and accommodation options abound.  If you want to look at alternatives to The Terrace Inn, check out the complete list on the Petoskey Chamber of Commerce website. 



Petoskey is located west of  Interstate 75, 40 miles south of the Mackinac Bridge.  

Pellston Regional Airport is served by connector flights from Detroit Metropolitan airport.  Traverse City airport is served by connector flights from multiple originations.   Rental cars are available at both airports.

Once you are in town
The majority of the retreat classes and rehearsals are held at Emmanual Episcopal Church and the American Harp Center.  HarpArts attendees tend to travel together to and from classes.  

Petoskey and Bay View provide lots of opportunities for walking.  Services in town include a great co-op, bookstores, coffee shops, restaurants, churches and The Crooked Tree Center for the Arts   To enjoy on your own so much of what Northern Michigan has to offer, a car could come in handy! 

  Imagine yourself...  
  Discussing music with friends,  
 taking a walk around Petoskey,

practicing a tricky section of music with a friend,

   joining the group in a rehearsal.  

The options are many and varied so join us for a week of
energy, learning, and hospitality.
