Founded in 2014, to further expand member Mary Dropkin’s love and knowledge of chamber music featuring an interesting, uncommon grouping of four harps – the ensemble performs a wide variety of works with friends and colleagues, and to bring the beauty and versatility of the harp to a wider audience. LA Harptette’s repertoire consists of original works for harp quartet, as well as arrangements of well-known orchestra works, and medleys of show tunes.
Members Mary Dropkin, Paul Baker, Laura Griffin-Casey and Jillian Lopez will perform music by Ray Burkhart, Bruce Broughton, Alan Hovhaness and others.
