Harps, Harps, and More Harps!


Last month I had the rare opportunity to be a part of The Philadelphia Orchestra’s first ever “PLayIN for Harp” on the mainline. Thirty-three harpists ranging in age from 5 to adult participated in the event, which also included principal harpist Elizabeth Hainen and prominent string players from the orchestra, along with Associate Conductor Cristian Macelaru. Harp Column was excited to be an official partner by providing music for the event through Harp Column Music. Here’s a video recap, just posted by The Philadelphia Orchestra. Enjoy!
