Santa Cruz Harp Festival
presented by the Community Music School
Sunday, March 13, 2:00PM
Resurrection Catholic Church, 7600 Soquel Drive, Aptos
Free, donations accepted

Join us for an afternoon free concert featuring harps of all kinds, soloists, and a harp orchestra! This year's focus (just in time for St Patrick's Day) is the legacy of the Irish harp, and the music of famed harpist/composer and "the last bard of Ireland", Turlough O'Carolan, whose pieces combined the sensibilities of traditional Irish music with the Baroque style of his day. Also featured will be African kora and classical pedal harp.

Come join soloists Jesse Autumn, Shelley Phillips, Steve Coulter, Malima Kone, and Jennifer Cass, as well as the whole harp community to celebrate.

Tea and harp shaped cookies will be served at intermission. A free will offering to benefit Community Music School will be gratefully accepted.
