In celebration of the first day of #harpril2020 thanks to @lowpressureharpshare , we are celebrating a week of Identity. Part of my identity of becoming a Harpist was largely due to my teacher Susie Allen and her teachers Marcella DeCray and Catherine Gotthoffer all of which have left this earth. We were all fortunate to have shared a moment together because of the @harpsociety and the AHS Los Angeles chapter @laharpsociety . Educators are the foundation of my inspiration and identity as a musician.
Saturday afternoon at the PV Estates Malaga Cove Library vocalist Ashley @ashley_stanbury and I will be performing a versatile program of French works, musical theatre, and Irish melodies. FREE to the public.
Looking back on my 2019......
What a whirlwind of a year! I lost my harp of 20 years due to a fall, bought my dream harp, repaired my old harp. Debuted a Chamber Music Company- LA Chamber Music Co. @losangelescmc with my business partner in crime Ryan Glass @ryanglass_clarinet . Got my first tattoo. Formed a trio with Jon Stehney and Christine Tavalaccie @leflute Trio Eclipse. Traveled to the Johnson Space Center. Created and collaborated with amazing musicians, composer’s, and friends. Looking back at it all, I will never forget the year 2019. It forced me to change creatively in more ways than one. I am looking forward to taking these next ten years by the horns and getting to work, to play, and to love. Here’s to the year 2020 and to a new era!
