Grace performs at Carnegie


I’m so excited to share the last few years of my life with friends and musicians at Carmegie Hall tomorrow (Sunday)! It’s been a roller coaster couple of years; with serious loss, sadness, rebirth and now light. Beside me the entire time have been my friends and family. This is a musical  ride through the dark and light times. The very friends who offered constant support are now sharing the stage for this wonderful program. Four living composers are represented, including  a world premiere commissioned for this program by L.A. composer, David Lefkowitz!

This program is dedicated to two amazing mentors and harpists- Deborah Hoffman and Emily Oppenheimer

Please join us in New York!

Here is the program, performers and ticket details. And now, life goes on…

Included will be works by Puccini, Holst, Elgar, Villa-Lobos, and the world premiere of Love Fragments by David Lefkowitz.

  1. Hi Grace,

    Congratulations on playing Carnegie! Maybe George and I will hear you play later on this fall at All Souls Interfaith when he gets back from his carillon tour, if you’ll be there. This sounds like a wonderful program! Btw, we enjoyed your concert at Hinesburg 🙂

    All the best,
