    My teacher told me of a song she heard preformed at a harp
    conference that uses a frying pan to hit the bass strings. I believe
    she said that Nancy Allen preformed it. Does anyone know about this
    song? Is it in print? It sounded like a very interesting piece.

    If it only hits the strings lightly, it shouldn’t be toooo bad….

    I haven’t heard of the song, but if you find out be sure to let us all know.

    Hi Carl:

    I believe it was Susan Allen, Professor of Harp and Associate Dean at the California Arts
    Institute, who first performed the work you are referring to.

    There’s also a piece called Chicken Reel by Joseph Quintile, in which you make the harp cluck like a chicken. And it does.
