Picture of London Wedding Harpist SE34

Harp player SE34 is one of the few harpists in the UK who plays both a full-size concert harp, and a small, strap-on Electric Harp. She has just returned from Boston, where she did a 5-month Jazz Residency with Deborah Henson-Conant, the world's foremost electric harpist.

She studied the harp with Eira Lynn Jones at Chetham's School of Music, in Manchester. She spent her early years training as a junior at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, under the guidance of Charlotte Seale, where she was later offered a scholarship to pursue fulltime studies. She has played in master classes with Helga Stork, Kathleen Bride, Andrew Lawrence-Jones, Park Stickney and Elinor Bennett among others.

This harpist has performed internationally and at many prestigious venues in the UK including St John's Smith Square, the Royal Albert Hall, the Barbican Centre (and the Barbican Art Gallery where she played as part of an installation for their Seduced exhibition in 2008), LSO St. Luke's and the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester. She has performed at the House of Lords, in the company of Prince Charles at St. James' Palace and for HRH the Duke of Edinburgh at the Senate House in Cambridge. She performed at George Best's Memorial Service at Manchester Cathedral, and for George Martin's Birthday Celebration at GSMD. She has also enjoyed much collaboration with various solo instrumentalists, chamber groups, orchestras, singers and beatboxers.

During her three years at Cambridge, she played principal harp for the Cambridge University Chamber Orchestra, the City of Cambridge Symphony Orchestra and variously for Jesus, Trinity, Clare, Queens, Pembroke and Kings College Music Societies. She also premiered a work for harp, clarinet and contemporary dancers (playing the harp part rather than the dance part, sadly!) as part of Professor Robin Kirkpatrick's Dante Project, which was called back for a second performance series in 2010, due to popular demand.

She played principal harp for the Cambridge University Opera Society in Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin, in 2009, and in Debussy's Pelleas and Melisande, in 2010. She also played for the award winning Shadwell Society in their production of Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream both in Cambridge and at the Edinburgh Festival. She re-joined Shadwell for their national tour with Britten's Albert Herring in Summer 2011. In 2010 she joined The Staircase Band, providers of whirling gypsy hurly-burly, Balkan beats and Klezmer.

In between her concerts and appearances, wedding harpist London also performs regularly at weddings and other events. As she is London based, she primarily plays at events in London and the south east, but often travels all over the UK and abroad.
