About the Harps

I have multiple harps from which you may choose, based the style or appearance you prefer, the type of music you would like me to play, and availability of electricity/logistical considerations. All of my harps were built in the United States.


Venus Penti Pedal Harp

This harp has a modern design and a matte ebony finish. All music on the repertoire list can be played on this harp. Made by W&W Musical Instrument Company in Chicago, this harp is nearly six feet tall and has 46 strings. It was built in 2007.  This is the harp on which I most frequently perform and use for orchestral and chamber music performances.
