The Minnesota Chapter is excited to welcome harpist and arranger Rojean Loucks to the Twin Cities for start the year off with two workshops on arranging for the harp and a concert of her work.
Rojean about her harp journey: “The harp has taken me to Norway, where I toured and performed with a group of harpers; to Canada and Ireland, where I gained instruction for teaching in the aural tradition; and accompanied me on a visit to Japan, where I shared music in elementary classrooms and calmed a fussy toddler in a home I was visiting. It has brought me joy, calmed my anxiety, and eased my sorrow. It has motivated me to teach others to play, and inspired me to compose and arrange music specifically for folk harp.”
