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.

I was very impressed with the excellence of the Sinfonietta. They are a small group that packs a lot of punch! The mind meld between the conductor and Cecile Licad during the performance of Chopin's 2nd piano concerto was amazing! She was fun to watch as she went from powerful, full-body strokes on the keyboard to the softest caresses as the piece progressed. Her encore was wonderful and showed her love of a melody from her youth. It was all together a wonderful musical experience.
