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.
Hello! I am an experienced harpist serving northern Indiana and southern Michigan, available to add harp music to your event, your CD player or your iTunes.

The harp is a beautiful and elegant instrument used throughout time and around the world. 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 light-weight, rich-toned instrument also sports an electric pick up enabling me to play in all sorts of locations with and without amplification.
I have played my harps for private home parties and for 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 played preshows for the Blue Gate Theater, joined the Elkhart Symphony and the Elkhart Municipal Band in The Lerner Theater. I also play with the Maple City Chamber Orchestra in Sauder Hall on the Goshen College campus.
I am available to play for your special event: churches, weddings, funerals, receptions, open houses and more. I also mix music and public speaking in entertainment programs for senior facilities, civic clubs or banquets. When not on stage, I play my smallest harp in senior or hospice care settings.
My first CD, The Joy We Share, contains my original arrangements of favorite hymns for solo harp. Listen and purchase in the side bar, at my Media Page or on iTunes.
You can also click here to read about the adventures of making my first recording-even being interrupted by Batman! Since I designed my musical arrangements to express the meaning of the hymns, I’ve also made all the lyrics available on my Media Page.
At your request, I created a second CD, entirely of Christmas Carols! It is now available for purchase here in the side bar, at my Media Page or on iTunes. Give the gift of peaceful Christmas Harp music to yourself and all your friends and family!
