Each of these harpists can be heard on recordings (with other artists like Leona Naess, TV ON The Radio, Common, Ryan Leslie, Cassie)-now it is the time to hear them take over the stage for themselves.

The evening will feature each harpist demonstrating their adventurous take on the harp's potential in a broad musical setting. Their diverse backgrounds in jazz, hip hop, baroque pop, funk and classical styles will ensure the harp's continued presence in creative music for the 21st century.

8:00 p.m.
