Here is the information and review from our 5th and 6th meetings.

Our Song that we worked on is the Water is Wide. People were requested to send in a video of them walking by the water carrying their harp. In addition, we invited more people to send in the Inisheer song and to send Truman some pictures of walking on a Stoney Path.
Because we are hoping to have finished movies so we can keep moving on to the next songs, we are giving folks 2 weeks to practice and record their song. If you miss one of them, then try to at least commit to one song as we go along. It will be wonderful for you to say that you were on (at least) one of the Collages and give the USB to your facility. We plan to try to wrap up the Contemplative Program by the end of the summer and then start on a WORLD Music program designed for Senior Living Homes and schools in the Fall.
We are open to receiving any donations to our Non-Profit Angel Harps 501-c3 which is tax dedcutible. This will help us in the project that we feel will bring great awareness to therapeutic harp and open the doors for many of our Practitioners to have new places of work.
Here is a video of the Water is Wide that is outstanding. We are also open to solos that we can use, although we cannot promise we will be able to use every single solo but will do our best. If not for the Contemplative then for the World Program.

Here is the recording of our #4 gathering. Things are moving along. Truman Edison who is living in Japan has done a wonderful compilation on our first Beta Collage. We have discussed some ideas along with his suggestions. You will find our discussions and likely any questions you have will be answered in this recording

We are excited to share our project of HarpSoulRising with you!
Below you will find the first three informational sessions where we discussed the outline and various songs that may be very appropriate.
We are looking to create two musical therapeutic harp collages.
1. The first is a contemplative program basically built on the three Celtic strains of music – or as we call it the Celtic Circle. Music to calm, reflect, go into the soul and then ascend into inspiration, hope and joy.
2, The second collage is to introduce therapeutic music to the world by featuring music of the world! We have many international harp players who are offering exciting and sweet songs from many cultures. This musical collage will be designed to provide senior homes, schools, support groups, with cultural therapeutic harp music.
Our videos below will give you many ideas of what we are planning to create and would love to have you join us!
We meet once a month to receive new music and to socialize during this lockdown time.
