    Kay,

    Yes, Santa.

    Are you ever available on Monday mornings? We have a group that meets once a month. You’d fit right in.

    Will you be going to BitM? Santa and I plan to be there.

    Kay,

    Several of Sousa’s marches have harp parts, because Sousa had a harpist in his band. They’re not very harpy, primarily boom-chuck, but I think it’s fun to play a Sousa march on a harp. The music arranged by Loras Schissel has the harp parts.

    There are several pieces for concert band that have harp parts. I’ve also gone to the Petrucci music library and downloaded orchestral harp parts. Sometimes I can use them as is, sometimes I have to transpose.

    There’s Nocturne for Harp and Band, by Clare Grundman, which features the harp. There is a Fantasia for Harp and Concert Band, by James Bingham.

    Kim or Hugh, I know there’s a way to link these pieces, but I don’t know the specifics. Help, please.

    I play flute and sometimes harp in the ______ Concert Band, within an hour of where you live. You have met me. We’ve talked at an Alice Giles masterclass, and at Beginning in the Middle.

    Dewey Owens has a book titled “Jewish Traditional Music” which contains Kol Nidrei. The level of play is listed as lower intermediate.

    My favorite music stand is the Nilton Magic Stand. It’s light weight, folds compactly and easily, and supports a heavy folder or gig book. The legs are adjustable. They will spread for stability at an outdoor gig, but can be retracted to fit into limited space if necessary. The case for it is priced separately, but worth getting.

    If you have another harpist, as well as a flutist and a cellist, Ken Gist has a lovely arrangement of “In the Bleak Midwinter.”

    You could also try Karl Wienand’s music, especially his Quietude book.

    I’ve not tried this harp at all, but it looks interesting.

    Amy,

    Sometimes a string sounds very bad if a lever is partially engaged.
