The Harp Goes for Baroque:
Music of the 17th Century on the Triple-Strung Harp

7416 Arlington Blvd., Falls Church, VA

Join historical harpist Constance Whiteside for an exploration of some of her favorite musical gems to be found throughout the 17th century cultures of Europe.

The harp has featured prominently in every culture throughout the world since early recorded history. It has risen to the occasion by changing size, shape and strings to meet the needs of each new genre of music. Matching the period of the harp to the music entirely transforms the listening experience.

In this performance, Dr. Whiteside talks about and performs on the “queen” of the pre-modern harps, a 75-string chromatic Italian baroque triple harp.

Only a handful of harpists in the world perform on baroque multi-row historical harps. Do not miss this rare opportunity to hear this beautifulinstrument.

Adults $15. Students and Seniors $10. Tickets at the door.
Proceeds will benefit the Washington Area Folk Harp Society Scholarship Fund and Educational Programs.
