Thank You!!

March 22, 2012
A big thank you to everyone who participated in and attended the Gala Concert at the George Peabody Library -- it was a very special occasion with both HarpAdventures students and their teachers performing.  The setting was of course beautiful, everyone did a fantastic job, and Laura Stokes could not possibly have organized anything more amazing!  The silent auction had some really wonderful items and we raised $1000 toward our eventual instrument purchases!  There will hopefully be some matc...

Off We Go!

October 10, 2011
Fall enrollment is pretty much finished -- many of our new and returning students have been back to work for several weeks and our latest members -- from the GBYO Bridges Program -- are happy to be starting their classes now. It's hard to believe that we will have our first concert(s) in a little less than two months!  But with awesome teachers and enthusiastic students  the only possible outcome is a hugely successful one.  Get ready, world!

What a Great Year!

May 18, 2011
This was an amazing year for our HarpAdventures students, many of whom have played two or three concerts in the last month!  The teachers are SO proud of everyone, and very grateful to the wonderful parents who have supported all this extra activity.  Special thanks also to John Marks of Grace & St. Peters and Sr. Lisa Petrowski of the Mother Seton Academy, without whom these efforts would not have been possible.
