Nope, I didn't get the memo to wear a black t-shirt in this photo...

Direct message me to take harp lessons from me via Skype or in person (in Placerville or S. Lake Tahoe)

Introduction

Harpist on the 2015 GRAMMY® Award Winning Album "Winds of Samsara" (Best New Age Album)

"Beautiful music!" -- United Airlines Inflight Music Service

"Anne plays what is without a doubt the finest Celtic Harp version of Stairway to Heaven ever made." -- Ian Chillag, Producer and Co-Host, "How to Do Everything" radio show, NPR

"The Celtic harp is a wonderful instrument, and in the hands of Anne Roos, is absolutely mesmerizing." -- Corey Taratuta, co-host of the Irish Fireside Podcast

Anne Roos' music flew around the world on United Airlines. Anne has played for dignitaries, such as the Lord Mayor of Dublin Ireland. And her performances at concerts, corporate events, wineries, festivals, and weddings number in the thousands. Anne Roos has played her eclectic mix of music on the Celtic harp for more than thirty years. Her music was even featured on United Airlines Inflight Music Service. Anne is the harpist on the 2015 GRAMMY® Award Winning album, "Winds of Samsara" (Best New Age Album). She has received the WeddingWire Couples' Choice Award four years in a row. 

Listen to an early episode to NPR's "How to Do Everything", and you'll hear co-host Ian Chillag play Anne's version of "Stairway to Heaven", saying "Anne plays what is without a doubt the finest Celtic harp version of 'Stairway to Heaven' ever made.’" Funny, because there may be no other recorded versions of this tune on the Celtic harp out there.

Her live TV performances received thousands of views on YouTube. Anne's good-natured versatility on the harp has won the hearts of TV anchors, who seem to find great delight in placing Anne in odd situations to play the harp--inside an elevator for live elevator music, and inside a shower (no water running!). When Anne asked Cody Stark, the host at Good Day Sacramento, if the station had a helicopter where she could play, he retorted, "Don't tempt me to put you on the roof of the TV station next time!"

Anne is comfortable playing the harp just about anywhere--on stage in front of large audiences and for small, intimate gatherings, such as house concerts. Not the picky diva, she can perform with a finely crafted wooden harp, or a state-of-the-art lightweight, ten-pound carbon fiber harp, which can go places that no harp could go before. "I'm waiting for someone to ask me to play harp in a hot air balloon!" she says.

Anne's music education includes theory courses at UCLA (where she also earned a degree in Mathematics). She taught music for the Los Angeles Unified School District and  continues to teach: Anne offers Celtic harp lessons to anyone in the world via Skype.

Her ability to play a wide variety of music on the Celtic harp is what sets Anne apart from other musicians. Her repertoire ranges from the expected--traditional Celtic, Early, Renaissance, folk, world and classical music--to the unexpected--modern popular music, including Broadway standards, movie themes, country, and Disney themes. Then there's the uber-unexpected tunes that often cause jaws to drop when Anne plays them: tunes by the Beatles, Metallica, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Sting, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and more. Her skilled renditions and flexibility make Anne a popular and much sought after musician for all types of events. She particularly enjoys being challenged with audience requests.

Anne's six commercially available albums are unique--Several of them are packaged as little books with CDs tucked neatly into the back page. She recognizes that her listeners enjoy reading about the background of the music on her CDs. Anne also collaborated with an ensemble of musicians on these albums, and she looks forward to playing with other musicians on stage. "It's fun to hear the creation of music organically, just for a specific performance. I love to see how the Celtic harp will blend with other instruments."

You’ll find Anne’s CDs available to sample at her website, HarpistAnneRoos.com. You can also view her ever-growing repertoire list there, too. Her products are also available at amazon.com. Downloads can be found at iTunes.

For more information regarding my music please visit her website or send her an email.

Recording engineer extraordinaire Michael Eardley made the recording process easeful for me, enabling me to hand in my best performances for recording purposes. It was such a joy working with Michael and Catherine at Tanglewood that I can't wait to record there again. There's a reason why his recording work has received a GRAMMY® nod. Bravo Tanglewood Productions!
