Our chapter was well represented at the American Harp Society's 41st National Conference in New Orleans.
Most notably, chapter member Sophia Graf, student of Gretchen Van Hoesen, was chosen along with Chloé Tula and Molly O’Roarke as one of the three winners of the 2014 Anne Adams Awards. Each receives a $2,000 award designated for full-time study of the harp at a college or university, along with a $500 gift certificate from Lyon & Healy. Natalie Stafford was one of the nine finalists.
Pittsburghers played two duo-harp concerts: Courtney Hershey Bress, daughter of Suzanne Hershey, performed with Kathleen Bride; and Gretchen Van Hoesen and Heidi Van Hoesen Gorton performed together.
And at the Mardi Gras Masked Ball Orchestra Gala on the final evening, James Gorton, Gretchen Van Hoesen, & Heidi Van Hoesen Gorton performed the Goossens Concert Piece for Oboe/English Horn, Two Harps, and Orchestra.
