Millennium Harper Awards
Hi, I'm John Lozier, Millennium Harper of West Virginia! I claimed that title in the millennium year 2000, after a year in which I harped in every single one of our 55 counties. Thereafter, Harping for Harmony Foundation established the Millennium Harper Awards to recognize worthy quests undertaken by other harpers.
As Thomas Paine said,
Titles are secured by claims. Titles are a joke if the claim is not worthy. Worthy claims are those which are honored or recognized by peers. The Millennium Harper Award honors and recognizes a harpist who has established a worthy record of live performance.
To establish the record, the harpist first must declare a year-long quest and specify the title to be claimed. The quest must involve live performance. It must be a substantial service to your community. And it must stretch your comfort level as a person and performer. Your skill level is not the important criterion!
