What the pros are adding

The experts we talked to all echoed the importance of continuously updating your gig book with chart-topping tunes, songs listeners request, and pieces you want to learn just because you enjoy them.

Elizabeth Steiner is executive director of the Lyra Society and the harpist at the Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia, Pa.

Elizabeth Steiner recently added “Killing Me Softly” and “A Day in the Life of a Fool” by one of her favorite harp arrangers, Paul Baker. She also added ‘Lovesong,’ ‘Million Years Ago,’ and ‘Skyfall’ by Adele from a piano book. I just downloaded ‘Halo’ by Beyonce, ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran, and ‘Redbone’ by Childish Gambino.”
