47 Strings, harp concerts in the community

47 Strings is a unique and unprecedented harp concert series. For each of the 47 strings, Houston [...]harpist Meghan Caulkett will be performing one interactive outreach program. So far, over 22 performances have taken place for the elderly and homeless, and for preschool, elementary, and special needs children. Over 1,600 children have been exposed to solo and chamber harp music from Ginastera, Bartok, Tournier, Salzedo, Ravel and Debussy. The main goal of 47 Strings is to foster a greater understanding and appreciation for classical music, by providing concerts to audiences who are not often exposed to it.
