Judy Kadar
(January 24, 1950 – June 27, 2021)

It is with heavy hearts that we learn that our friend and colleague Judy Kadar passed away after a short but valiant struggle with lung cancer, which had metastasized to cause multiple lesions in the brain. Judy was a pioneer in the field of historical harp performance and research. She was a founding member of the Verein zur Förderung historischer Harfen (International Historical Harp Society). She founded the Historical Harp Conference, which took place as part of the Amherst Early Music Festival. From this conference grew the Historical Harp Society.

A Colloquium in memory of Judy will be held on Sunday, July 18 via Zoom, featuring presenters from around the world. For further information, click here.
