Esther Underhay’s mission is to make the harp “sing” and to touch the hearts of her audience. With her Elegant Harp recital, she brings the joy of music to the museum. Esther’s program includes Classical music, jazz, Broadway favorites and pop, which she will perform in the stunning setting of the Chihuly glass collection at WMODA. The Virtual Event featuring The Elegant Harp at WMODA will premiere online Saturday, May 30.
