Looking for harp music for your event? Wanting to take private lessons? Interested in keeping up-to-date with her upcoming events? Other thoughts?
Stephanie would love to hear from you!
And we’re off! The fall semester of HYHE started today, and we have the coolest group of high school and middle school harpists. Already counting down until we present “Fantasy and Fairy Tales” in December!
#tbt to that time I lived in Chile and got to make music in this gorgeous theatre every day.
Snapped while performing John Cage’s gorgeous and meditative “In a Landscape” at Rothko Chapel 🌾
Kicked off the weekend with a stunning wedding ceremony @thecarriagehousehouston (pretty good acoustics, too..!). Congrats, Rebecca and Gabriel!
About this weekend... 😍
So excited to be performing Schoenberg’s chamber arrangement of Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun for @festivalsouth this weekend!! (And if this doesn’t melt your cold heart, idk what will)
The loveliest benefit dinner for the @ahahouston 💕
And just like that, we’ve wrapped the first HYHE season, and I think I can safely say it was beyond anything @naomihoffmeyer.harpist and I imagined when we started plotting last May. We both learned so much as teachers, artistic directors, graphic designers, schedulers, conductors... the list goes on. The enthusiasm from the students and support from the parents (so! much! support!) was both humbling and empowering. We have taken so much away from this first year and are feeling so inspired to make next season even better. (Registration opens June 1 if you know someone who might benefit from a supportive, personalized, small ensemble experience!)
Blurry but cute anyway..
Who is already looking forward to the next #HYHE season?! 🙋🏼♀️ Registration opens June 1—more details coming soon! ・・・
It’s like Christmas morning over here! Soooo excited about the new #HoustonYouthHarpEnsemble materials. @harpiststephanie, we have come so far this year. ☺️
Let’s all say thanks to the Baptists for their pretty churches with large enough stages to fit orchestras.
When your hall is under renovation but SOMEone’s gotta do the requiem....
Christina and Aaron had some fun requests for their ceremony, including music from Beauty and the Beast and Game of Thrones! I had a lot of fun playing in such a beautiful space.
Three of my students got harps delivered this week and I’m over here 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼. Thanks @lyonhealyharps for your incredible pre-owned and rental harps, making it so much easier for families to afford harp lessons. This teacher is so happy to have her students playing such high quality instruments.
Maybe the first elegant photo I’ve ever seen of a harpist tuning? This photo is from a beautiful outdoor ceremony at @venue311. Hope newlywed life is treating you well, @paige_aronson!
@naomihoffmeyer.harpist and I couldn’t be more proud of our sweet HYHE students this semester. Enthusiastic, hard-working, kind, curious... it’s an honor to get to direct them. Thanks to @emilykleinharp, @hopecowanharp, and other harp teachers in Houston for encouraging your students to participate.
About last night...
I’ve had the loveliest week playing La Mer with @housymphony. So sad today’s the last show 😭
Happy Saturday from this rocking Houston Youth Harp Ensemble..!
Celebrating Valentine’s Day with a little swing music.
