Steadfast to Strings: De­voted Kens­ing­ton harp­ist shares pas­sion to im­pact stu­dent at pub­lic schools

May 23, 2016

EXCERPT: As a freel­ance harp­ist, Stein­er has per­formed as prin­cip­al harp­ist with var­ied area or­ches­tras, in­clud­ing the Bal­timore Sym­phony, Delaware Sym­phony, Lan­caster Sym­phony and Mary­land Sym­phony.  Just this past week­end, from May 6 to 8, she per­formed with the Delaware Sym­phony at the Grand Op­era House in Wilm­ing­ton.

Be­sides these per­form­ances, an­oth­er ma­jor activ­ity in­volves not per­form­ing but teach­ing.

She is a key par­ti­cipant in Glis­sando, a pro­gram which in­tro­duces pub­lic school stu­dents to the harp and provides free in­struc­tion.

This is done through the Lyra So­ci­ety, a non­profit or­gan­iz­a­tion foun­ded by North­ern Liber­ties res­id­ent Eliza­beth Hain­en, who is prin­cip­al harp­ist with the Phil­adelphia Or­ches­tra.
