Come and enjoy an afternoon of festive harp music at our twentieth annual holiday concert! The program will include a selection of seasonal music, including traditional carols and popular holiday music. We will feature harp solos along with the sight and sound of more than twenty harps performing together in our studio ensemble. We are delighted to welcome as our guest artist the exciting and highly acclaimed harpist Anna Maria Mendieta. Anna Maria is internationally known for her classical, flamenco and tango harp music, which she has performed for audiences that have included heads of state, European royalty, and Pope Benedict XVI.
Anna Maria enjoys a busy career as a soloist, orchestral musician, recording artist and teacher. She is principal harpist with the Sacramento Philharmonic and has performed with many symphony orchestras and chamber music groups across the country, often as a featured soloist. She has received international recognition as "an exceptional soloist" by the American League of Symphony Orchestras for her performance of the tango music of Astor Piazzolla. Anna Maria was a featured instrumentalist for several seasons with Theater Flamenco of San Francisco. She performed for the 2006 National Harp Conference premiering her presentation of harp and tango music. Her national touring concert-show "Tango del Cielo" is the focus of a documentary film.
You can learn more about Anna Maria and her music on her website, www.annamariamendieta.com. We look forward to welcoming her to this year's concert.
