Thursday, April 18, 2013

FREDERICK, Md.—The American Youth Harp Ensemble, in collaboration with the Virginia Choristers and St. Bridget Parish Choir, will perform a concert April 27 at 7:30 p.m. in Coffman Chapel at Hood College.

The ensemble, directed by Frederick, Md., native Lynelle Ediger, has played hundreds of concerts in legendary concert halls around the country and the world, including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the East Room of the White House, and at the Edinburgh and Paris Music Festivals, to name a few.

The Richmond, Va.-based ensemble is a nationally recognized model arts education program that serves more than 300 young harpists, ages 5 to 18, annually. According to its website, the organization maintains and develops programs and performance opportunities for children and youth, utilizing the harp as a catalyst for personal growth.

The ensemble will perform the same program two days later at its Lincoln Center debut at Alice Tully Hall.

The concert is free; donations will be accepted.
