    Someone recently sent me this photograph and asked if I could identify one of the people in it. There are actually 2 people in this photo that I don’t recognize. For context: The photo was taken at the Denver AHS Conference in 1988, and Carol Mclaughlin was the opening night soloist. She’s standing in the center of this line. All of the other women in this picture are harpists that had performed at past AHS harp conferences. Starting on the left, the first harpist is Katherine Gotthoffer. I don’t know who the second person is.The third is Phia Berghout, then Carol. The person to the right of Carol is the main mystery woman. I have no idea who that is. Next to her is, I believe, Phyllis Scholmovitz, then Lynn Palmer, then all the way to the right, Ann Mason Stockton.

    Hi Saul- Turns out that is not Gayle Levant. So I’m still trying to find out who it is. Had to be a pretty good professional harpist.

    Could the player 2 to the right of Carol in the picture be Heidi Lehwalder, whom you haven’t mentioned at all & not Phyllis Scholmovitz who would have been a little older ?

    No, that’s not Heidi. I’m sure that that person (white dress) to the right of Carol is Phyllis. I’m still stumped on the two mystery women that I mentioned in the first post above.

    Thank you Catherine. I know the name, but had never seen a picture of her. Was she an orchestra harpist? What did she do?
