The December calendar is filling up with lots of harpy stuff - hope to see you at some of them. I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this may be your last Resonance unless you have renewed. To do so, please click on Join Us. It’s fast, easy and cheap. The directory will go to the printer soon – don’t be left out!
You must be a member to apply for our spring scholarships. I hope you saw the plea from Pat Wooster about the need for all harp things in Cuba: strings (includes old ones), music, CDs, even harps, if you have one lying around. Their few harps are often decrepit, and strings may be replaced by fishing line. The ship leaves Florida December 2. Please contact Pat at 253-862-3400, c. 253-797-9424; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.. For more details see my email of Oct. 20. Joyce

Spotlight on Carol Levin: How She Came to Play the Harp, Left and Returned...
Start #1 At age ten, I attended National Music Camp in Interlochen, Michigan. One class I took that summer was Instrument Exploration - I resonated with the harp; back home in Chicago studied with Jill Bailiff Reyes at Northwestern, later played with the Chicago Youth Symphony and studied with CSO harpist, Edward Druzinsky. At a college with no teacher I drifted away and eventually sold the harp. (It’s in the movie My Bodyguard, played at the Pump Room in Chicago’s Ambassador East Hotel).
Start #2 Decades later, living in Seattle, my husband surprised me with a birthday gift of a Dusty Strings 26, and I noodled around for a few years and taught beginning group harp lessons at Washington Middle School in Seattle.
Start #3 I took Ev Stern’s Jazz Workshop, learned to read charts, joined the MoodSwings women’s big band, and now sit in at jazz and blues sessions around town.
Start #4 My passion these days is improvised music, and I welcome every opportunity to join those brave musicians who are willing to jump into the deep end to make fully collaborative, in-the-moment creative music (including chapter member Monica Schley). Electric harp! Effects pedals! Wah-wah!
