    For anyone who hasn’t heard of Hannah Lash, I just wanted to mention she is a composer who is also a harpist. She is a composition professor at Yale, and she just finished composing a harp concerto. I have one of her solo harp pieces that I haven’t had a chance to learn yet, but I’m really excited about it. From what I’ve seen of her music, I suspect a lot of harpists would really love it. She cares a great deal about meaning in music and she makes natural use of the instrument. I have some brief interaction with her on Facebook and am really happy to learn about her and her work.
