Intoxicating Effect of Acoustics on Harp Music in a Monastery

On Sunday April 7th I performed at the New Camaldolese Monastery in Big Sur for their Sunday service.   I can't even begin to share the full ramifications of what it is like to hear even one string being played in this sanctuary.  It's truly intoxicating for a musician.

There is just this magical effect that I feel when I tune up and begin to play in this location.  Is it the God effect ? the acoustics? or what?

I feel so much more fully alive when I play in a setting like this.

Big Sur Marathon Harpist -Taking Life NOT SO Seriously & the Harp too

the SHOES for the Big Sur Marathon. It's all about the shoes.
Life is way too short and we often take and make life too serious.

This year I decided to go all out for the Big Sur International Marathon.  My 10th year as the official harpist for the Marathon and after losing 45 pounds since last year, I wanted to truly celebrate and support the runners at an entirely new level.(Thinking on it now, I should have worn a costume that would show off my figure, lol.)

Every year runners and musicians brave the elements to test themselves, their skills, their spirit, their bodies and their minds to complete an amazing feat.

Harping the Day Away -Different sounds-Different Harps

Playing on different harps. Did you know that every harp has its own voice, it's own resonance, it's own song to sing.  A small harp like this one can even sound louder than a larger harp.  It's all in the making of the sound box.   

Harp Maker: Chris Parks of Romance Harps in Atlanta Georgia is working on some new prototypes of harps. A new unique therapy harp will be emerging and luckily, I will get to influence this.

Merry Christmas Everyone.
