Chattanooga Harp Ensemble Has 2 Free October Concerts

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Chattanooga Harp Ensemble, a division of Jan Pennington Gray Harp Fund, is offering two free concerts in October, open to the public.

 The first concert will be Saturday, Oct. 12, 7 p.m. at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 822 Belvoir Avenue.  The second will be Thursday, Oct. 17, 7 p.m. at St. Martins Episcopal Church, 7547 East Brainerd Road. 

The concerts will include over a dozen harps playing with the flute, piano, xylophone, and percussion.  The harps will become the drums in two pieces of music. With tricks of the trade, the harp will sound, at times, like a totally different instrument, officials said.

The music will be a collection of jazz, classical, theatre favorites, and Celtic.  There will also be a storyteller who plays her harp, along with a solo, duet, and a family trio.

For more information visit www.chattanoogaharpensemble.org.  Chattanooga Harp Ensembe is a non-profit organization existing to promote harpists to play together, provide scholarships to harpists around the world, and to share a love of the harp with audiences.

For questions, contact Beverly Inman-Ebel, president of Jan Pennington Gray Harp Fund, 400-4241 or bie@talklisten.com.
