Harp Virtuoso at Pear Valley Estate Wine
Symphony of the Vines is pleased to present Harp Virtuoso on Sunday, March 3, 4 p.m., Pear Valley Estate Wine in Paso Robles.
The harp, with 47 strings, is unique among the instruments we hear in the orchestra. Like the piano, it is capable of playing melody and harmony at the same time, and, as we will hear, it is an ideal companion in chamber music with other instruments.
Harpist Catherine Yom Litaker is a rising star in the music world, and we are delighted to have her share her talents (and that of her accomplished friends!) with you. Enjoy!
Dr. Greg Magie, Music Director
Harp Virtuoso features:
Catherine Litaker, harp
Juan Antonio Rivera, flute
Hilary Clark, cello
This is a great concert for young musicians! Students are free with a paid adult thanks to a generous sponsorship by Jim and Carolyn Brescia!
