Young at Harp is a community service program which focuses on local retirement communities, nursing homes, and senior centers as experienced student harpists perform solo concerts, small ensemble concerts and educational presentations in these venues.

  • We reach over 50 nursing homes annually in the region.
  • In addition to our on-site performances, we have cultivated relationships with activities directors and offer group rate tickets to residents to our community concert events. We have seen an increase in audience numbers due to these efforts.

    WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING...............................................................

    "I never really imagined the immense impact the harp would have on me. I now realize the harp's influence in both my growth as a musician and in other areas of my life. Through daily practice I have learned goal-setting techniques, determination and teamwork; through performing I have leaned to control nerves, remain poised and speak in public; through mentoring mentally challenged students I have learned to reach out into the community and respect others different from myself; and, as a Young at Harp performer, I've realized how much joy sharing the harp can bring to others."
