I received a last-minute call to fill in as the presenter for an educational session at Concordia Village Senior Living, and was delighted to share the music of the harp with the residents there! On Monday afternoon, I presented a recital program that included Celtic, classical, popular, and jazz harp music.
In addition to the performance aspect of the afternoon, I included a little bit of harp history, some stories about weddings I’ve played and my work in India, and answered questions about the structure, transport, and inner workings of the harp.
Some of the music I played included:
- Carolan’s Welcome
- At Last
- Can’t Help Falling in Love
- O re piya
- Edelweiss from The Sound of Music
- You’ll Never Walk Alone from Carousel
- Lara’s Theme from Dr. Zhivago
- Moon River from Breakfast at Tiffany’s
From educational presentations and recitals to weddings and corporate parties, a harp delights people of all ages! Contact me via my website ~ Springfield Harpist ~ for details and a quote.
