Description:

I began playing the harp at age six and have recently graduated from the Eastman School of Music with a BM on harp performance. I have played at all types of events from orchestra gigs and solo performances to religious ceremonies and crowded parties. I live outside of New York City and would be willing to travel to a variety of different locations.

   

I present myself professionally bothin appearance and performance. I am good at sight reading and have an excellent memory which enables me to memorize music earily. I enjoy playing in groups as well as performing alone. I am good at the arrangement of music to accommodate the harp and have a good repertoire of music. Last, but not least, I am congenial and easy going with others.

Biography:

I began laying the harp at age six studying with Merynda Adams. I began playing with the Lakeland Youth Orchestra when I was eight years old. By the age of thirteen, I auditioned for the New Jersey AllState Orchestra where I became part of the orchestra for the nest three years. During high school I was part of the New Jersey Youth Orchestra and during my junior and senior year joined the New Jersey Youth Symphony. I graduated from the Eastman School of Music, studying with Kathleen Bride and received a BM in Applied Music in Harp Performance.

I began gigging when I was about thirteen, playing at a local nursing home. I have played weddings- all denominations, cocktail parties, tea parties, luncheons, Christmas Eve Mass and Christmas parties. I have played at NJ Performing Arts Center, Alice Tully Hall at Carnegie Hall and the Old and New Convention Center in Atlantic City.

I currently reside in New Jersey.
