Harp Shadows

Post has attachment
Eliza Ridgely was an American heiress who owned Hampton Mansion in Towson, Maryland in the nineteenth century. Her Grecian Erard pedal harp is of great importance to the Baltimore harp community. Area harpists are working to promote awareness and raise money to have Eliza's harp restored, as it is in danger of irreparable damage. The Chesapeake Harp Ensemble performed at the mansion to raise funds for the harp. To share and read more, please visit:

The students in my Chesapeake Harp Ensemble performed at Wesley-Freedom Church in February. There are three levels of experience in my group: late beginner, intermediate, and advanced players. Other students in my studio who are interested in joining the ensemble practice diligently to play well enough to be a part of it.
The Chesapeake Harp Ensemble entertained visitors at Hampton National Historic site in Towson, MD in May. They had the honor of performing in the Great Hall in front of Eliza Ridgely's beautiful portrait.
The ensemble performed at Hampton Mansion in order to raise money to stabilize and preserve Eliza Ridgely's 1817 Grecian Erard double-action pedal harp. It is one of the oldest double-action pedal harps in a museum in the United States.
