Carlsbad Boys & Girls Club Harp Recitals

I wanted to share a few photos from two recitals given by students from the Carlsbad Boys & Girls Club. The students ranged in age from 6-12 years old and practiced diligently to learn all of their songs in just six weeks! They performed four songs from around the world, including "Bamboo Leaves," a traditional Chinese song; "Glissando Waltz," a Viennese-inspired dance; "Celtic Reel," based on the Irish song "Brian Boru's March;" and the well-known American folk tune "Yankee Doodle Dandy."

This recital was the culmination of the Museum of Making Music's Harps in the City program (you can read more about that in an earlier post). It was a very rewarding experience to work with the kids and I was thrilled to have the opportunity! A special thank you to the Museum of Making Music, the Carlsbad and Bressi Ranch Boys & Girls Clubs, the Carlsbad Charitable Foundation, and all of the volunteers who generously donated their time to make this program possible.
