Karen Grimsey is the Marine Band harpist as far as I am aware of. Venus Harps donated a GORGEOUS Gold Paragon to them a number of years ago. I understand that Phyllis Mauney, White House harpist at that time, didn’t like the harp but having been the staff harpist at Venus at the time, I made EXTRA sure that it was a fabulous instrument. God only knows who has done the regulation work on it over the years, if anyone at all. I can assure you that it was never a qualified Venus technician – so I have no idea if it is still used, which is a loss to the country. It was a magnificent instrument when it left the factory!
