It was such an amazing experience having Australian virtuoso harpist Alice Giles here in Richmond last week at AYHE! She was the featured artist to kick of the 2014-2015 Music from Grace concert series whos proceeds benefit Sound Experiences, an out-reach program that provides tuition free music lessons to children in Richmond. While she was here Ms. Giles was also able to give some of her time to teach two master classes to the AYHE students as well as stop by WCVE studios to talk a little bit about her trip to Richmond! What an amazing harpist and delightful person! Click here to listen to the full interview!
