posted this in parents of young harpists but bc this seems more frequented, I’ll post here.
My hs daughter had a random conversation with the symphonic band leader and he invited her to join symphonic orchestra bc he was looking for a harp player. She said, “I only play lever harp ” and he said “I’ll buy whatever you need.” Now her harp teacher is saying only pedal harp is appropriate, but she did say see if you can get copies of the music. Two hurdles: we don’t have a pedal harp at home to practice, and the music. so… can lever harp be used in high school symphonic orchestra, and can pedal harp music be adapted? I don’t think she has time to learn pedal harp and from what I understand even that needs to sometimes be adapted. The orchestra doesn’t currently have a harp; could lever be used in orchestra?
