This is our 17 year old godson in concert 2 weeks ago. We keep trying to claim free-floating godparent DNA for his talent, but he's the one with the gift and the determination.

Look for him in a concert hall near you when he's finished conservatory.

That was excellent.
What inspired him to go with a harp?

He saw a concert harp when he was 9, and decided he wanted to play. We'd given each of the boys an allowance, and he used his for harp lessons. Turns out he's a gifted musician. In his "spare" time he tunes harpsicords.

His older brother is pretty amazing as well in totally different ways.

We're just a tad biased.

Wow! Seriously impressive!

I've always admired the harp. For a long time i wanted to learn to pay a celtic harp but never had the time or money to invest. Listening to your godson play made me start thinking about it again.

Very Impressive Lisa... he's quite a talent, as I can see he plays it with his heart and that is why the music is so beautiful.

Nothing "absurd" about THAT "proud"!
An amazing passionate performance on a difficult instrument.
