Stoney End Harps is very excited to present SUNITA STANESLOW from Israel for a day of harp workshops, topped off with a concert with Garrison Keillor/Prairie Home Companion's GARY RAYNOR. This will be an amazing day with Sunita, starting at 9AM with registration/tuning of harps. The first workshop "Christmas and Hanukah" begins at 9:30 and is a hands-on instructional workshop geared for all skill levels focusing on creating a magical sound rather than mastering difficult pieces.Lunch break is 11:30-12:30 and the afternoon workshop begins at 12:30 and lasts until 2:30 "The Art of the Phrase" - breath, timing, tone are all elements that create that special magic that brings a piece to life. We will work on short phrases and focus on the timing within a phrase and the ebb and flow between phrases. This workshop is on musicality and is for all levels. Bring your harp and be ready to be inspired.
After a fun day of workshops, top off the day with Garrison Keillor Prairie Home Companion's own GARY RAYNOR performing with SUNITA from 3pm-4:30pm
