The Community Music School presents the 9th annual Santa Cruz Harp Festival, a celebration of the harp in its many forms: from the folk harp to the historical wire strung harp to the Classical pedal harp typically seen in orchestras. The concert features wonderful soloists, a harp “petting zoo” at intermission where audience members can try the harps, and the Community Music School Harp Orchestra conducted by Shelley Phillips performing traditional music from France, Venezuela, Germany, medieval Europe and Anglo/Celtic America.
