    I received an email from a friend about a Turkish harpist who apparently was on the Air France flight from Rio yesterday. Her name is Ceren Necipoglu and she had studied with Suzanne McDonald at Indiana University a while back. She had gone to Rio for the Rio Harp Festival to do two recitals. Another Turkish harpist, Sirin Pancaraglu was with her in Rio but took an earlier flight back. They had both brought students to the World Harp Congress last year and planned to host the European Symposium next summer. Ceren played the composition that won a contest 6 years ago.

    Oh Poor harpist ,and that’s really very sad, i sympathize with her parents and family,i wish she will be the Angel harp player in paradisum and maybe her music will be heard in the skies, that is really so hard Carl. i hope the passengers didnt suffer a lot before that disaster, i just cant imagine the situation when i heard that in the news. God keep their souls in peace…………………..

    Ceren was a beautiful woman all around.

    Peter- Thank you so much for that. it must be particularly hard for you and your wife who knew her and spent time with her. Did she have a husband and children? About how old was she? She apparently studied at Indiana University, but I don’t know how long ago. This would be a tragedy under any circumstance, but for the small harp community in Turkey to loose one of its brightest stars magnifies the loss even more.

    I’m sorry I didn’t know Ms. Necipoglu – and I’m sorry for the loss.

    I did find a segment about her on youtube (its written in Turkish – but I think the video is in Brazilian Portugese??) – and it does show her performing.. I thought someone might like to see it/have it… Kind regards William
