Local Learning: From Pedals to Strings: An Exploration of the Modern Concert Harp

Come explore the evolution of the harp through centuries of mechanical and compositional developments,  and learn about the pedagogical legacy of Carlos Salzedo and his pivotal role in bringing the harp out of the “ethereal” shadows and into the forefront by expanding the sound producing spectrum of the harp. A collection of beautiful harps will be present for display and for a live performance by Mr. Draughn.

Maurice Draughn, a native of Detroit, has appeared as a soloist with several orchestras including the International Symphony, Rochester Symphony, Plymouth Symphony, Michigan Philharmonic and the Detroit Symphony Civic Orchestra.  He also appeared in performance with legendary artists such as Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles. Maurice is co-director of the Harp Instruction and Performance Program (H.I.P.P.) in Detroit.
