Following in the footsteps of popular single-instrument showcases like Banj-O-Rama, Accordi-O-Rama and Zing Go the Strings comes the inaugural Harp-O-Rama. This pan-cultural concert features legendary Celtic harpist Máire Ni Chathasaigh (who has been called “the greatest Celtic harper of our age”) and her partner, guitarist Chris Newman. They’ll perform alongside the likes of Brooklyn kora player Kane Mathis and Correo Aereo, featuring Abel Rocha and Madeleine Sosin playing traditional harp styles of Venezuela, Mexico and original compositions. Adding to the whimsy will be interstitial video performances by Harpo Marx -- yes, that Harpo Marx, who was not only a film star but also an extraordinary classical harpist -- and the namesake of this event.

This is a very informal concert. It is all general admission, so you may want to get there a little early to get a good seat. Jeans and a nice shirt or sweater is appropriate attire. This event is also good for children and there were quite a few well-behaved children at this event.
About the Ticket Supplier: Lake Union Civic OrchestraLUCO is a largely volunteer-run, Seattle-based community orchestra distinguished by superb musicianship, low ticket prices, friendly atmosphere, central location of concerts, and exciting, innovative programming.
Local music critic Christopher DiLaurenti wrote, "LUCO's concerts have a homey feel missing from most classical music gigs; before the show, people laugh and chat casually as if at home. Yet when the music begins, the audience's attention becomes steadfast and quieter than most other orchestral performances I attend." (The Stranger, January, 2008.)
