We are looking forward to another fantastic season of the NC Harp Ensemble!
I am very appreciative of the opportunity for my daughter to play with the NC Harp Ensemble. I think it is invaluable to be able to be around other musicians, especially those who play the same instrument. The average person does not have so many opportunities to see, listen to, and speak with harpists up close, and it is very insightful. I just can't say enough about Ms Bartlett. She is wonderful. She gives excellent feedback, and is so good with the harpists of all ages and levels. She is approachable, and an excellent teacher. My daughter absolutely adores her, as do all the other harpists. - Judy, Parent
Challenging repertoire, commitment and accountability to fellow harpists, invaluable ensemble experience, and fun venues, were all part of our daughter’s four years as a member of the NC Harp Ensemble. As parents, we appreciated Manager Grace's planning and scheduling of rehearsals and events. Ms. Bartlett brings world class direction and coaching to every rehearsal. Solo performances are encouraged and the entire experience was a springboard for scholarship opportunities for college. Meeting other like-minded students and parents was the icing on the cake. Participation in the NC Harp Ensemble was the best move our family made on our harp journey! - Mark & Pamela, Parents
