Awake my harp! Awake my lyre!
My soul look to the skies!
We’ll brighten the night with a song of fire,
And cause the dawn to rise!
Walter Wangrin Jr.
I am a experienced harpist serving northern Indiana and southern Michigan, available to add harp music to your event or your CD player.
Why hire a harpist? Live music adds atmosphere and elegance to any even, and I love playing and performing harp in a wide range of venues. Calling me is your opportunity to make your event alive, unique and personal with live harp music.
The harp is a beautiful and elegant instrument used throughout time and around the world and you can read about my three sizes of harps in my biography . For events, I usually play a Lyon and Healy Petite Pedal harp I call Jocelyn. This a mid-size instrument with a rich tone is enhanced with an electric pick up and is light enough to transport, enabling me to play in all sorts of locations.
I have played my harps everywhere from private home parties to thousands at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair. I have performed indoors for corporate events, grand openings and fund raisers for non-profit organizations. I have played outdoors for weddings, anniversaries and art shows. I have played on the beaches of Lake Michigan, the pathways of the DeFries Calendar garden. I have opened for the Blue Gate Theatre, joined the Elkhart Municipal Band in the recently renovated Lerner Theater, and I play regularly with the Maple City Chamber Orchestra in Sauder Hall on the Goshen College campus.
I am available to play at any special event: weddings, funerals, churches, receptions, open houses and more. I also mix music and public speaking in programs for senior facilities, civic clubs or banquets. I also play my smallest harp in senior or hospice care settings.
My first CD, The Joy We Share, contains all my own original arrangements of hymns for solo harp. Listen and purchase in the side bar or at my Media Page.
You can also click here to read about the adventures of making my first recording. Since I designed my musical arrangements to express the meaning of the hymns, I’ve also made all the lyrics are also available on my Media Page.
