A great story about harp competitions
Review by Gabby on 07/17/20 review stating A great story about harp competitions
I really enjoyed seeing the young harpists and how they prepared for the competition. Learning how a harp is built was very interesting, too. I am buying this for a friend who is a harpist.

Highly enjoyable, minor disappointment
Review by Fred on 07/17/20 review stating Highly enjoyable, minor disappointment
I thoroughly enjoyed this program and the music, and learned a little about harp players as well. My minor disappointment was not getting to hear all three finalists play the same music so I could try judging, but with the longer playing time given to the Russian, I knew before the awards she had won.

Another Great PBS Documentary!
Review by A Y. on 07/17/20 review stating Another Great PBS Documentary!
I saw Harp Dreams one evening, and enjoyed it thoroughly! My best friend is a harpist and I knew she was teaching at that hour, so I bought the DVD for her and gave it to her for her birthday. She was thrilled -- and the DVD will now be viewed again and again, encouraging her students to dream big! What a wonderful evenings entertainment! Thanks so much for your impeccable work!

Worth the Watch, Harp Player or Not
Review by Tina on 07/17/20 review stating Worth the Watch, Harp Player or Not
This was a great show. See how these young but VERY talented harpists perform in a competitive arena. See how each bring a part of his/her culture and customs to deal with a stay in America while playing in one of the most dueling contests in harp competition. A mystery to the end, but great entertainment and peaks the interest of all music lovers.
