About Harp Ensemble

Directed by Jenny DeRoche Christian, the WYSO Harp Ensemble has two components: orchestral playing and participation in the ensemble. Students develop orchestral skills through individual and small group coaching, orchestra rehearsals, and performances. Additionally, the harp ensemble offers students the opportunity to learn chamber music skills.

Conducted by Steve Kurr, this orchestra has a strong emphasis on technique, and incorporates string instrument fundamentals as well as ensembles skills. The opportunity to play in Opus One is valuable to all young musicians who are at the early stages of string instrument studies.
