My years playing the harp have provided the opportunity to perform great music with wonderful musicians and to work with many wonderful students of all ages and backgrounds. I've been greatly blessed.
My Life as a Harpist
Ms. Newman has been performing extensively in the southeast both as a recitalist and orchestral harpist for many years and is currently Principal Harpist for the Huntsville Symphony. Recently she was featured soloist in a performance of Mozart's Concerto for Flute and Harp.
She also plays regularly with the Alabama Symphony in Birmingham including their performances at the Kennedy Center. For years Ms. Newman was Principal Harpist for the Mobile Opera Orchestra and she has developed an extensive teaching studio in northern Alabama.
Ms. Newman divides her time between her southeast activities and performances in the Washington metropolitan area. For example, she has performed with the St. Mary's Orchestra in their summer series and with the Alexandria Symphony on many occasions.
Ms. Newman earned both her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in harp at Auburn University. Additionally, she is currently teaching several courses in Music Appreciation at local colleges.
