More Information

The harp studio at SFA had been neglected until 2011. Since then two harp majors have graduated with Master’s Degrees, two harp majors are mid-way through their Bachelor’s, several harp minors sign up for lessons every year and continue their study throughout the year and beyond, many composition majors study harp to learn to write for the instrument. The good news as of August 2015 is that the College of Fine Arts and the School of Music have grown faster than any other college within SFA with the greatest increase in enrollment. “Transformation Vision 20-20” will raise 38 million dollars to provide a new facility for the College of Fine Arts and the School of Music within the next 5 years.
