Lucy has bravely taken on the learning of our whole program – 13 new works in all – which any harpist will tell you is no mean feat. SHE thinks she’s doing a tremendous job.
A little bit about Lucy: she started playing the harp at age six, and graduated from the School of Music in Canberra just a couple of years ago. She’s got several ‘strings’ to her harp, including being a Churchill Fellow after travelling to Italy to study the intricate and complex art of harp maintenance and regulation at the Salvi Harp factory. Lucy was the first woman ever to graduate from the course! She also has a Grad Dip in Music and Italian Education, which she’s put to good use in London and now in Melbourne, her home town, where she teaches Italian at Cantebury Primary School.
She’s a great addition to the team, and has even taken on the role of official photographer for the tour. Welcome Lucy!
