5 harps playing Wagner

Something for everyone - and did you know that in one piece he actually asked for 6 harps?  Fabulous. If you are in Vancouver Friday night, go hear the UBC Symphony: Elizabeth writes -

The UBC Symphony Orchestra will be playing an all-Wagner program at the Chan Centre on Feb. 9 at 8:00 pm. There will be five harps in the section: Noelle Kelbert, Hayley Farenholtz, Madison Dartana, Renee Qin and Elizabeth Volpé Bligh. Pieces with harp: Magic Fire Music, Siegfrieds Funeral March from Götterdämmerung, and the aria “Abendlich strahlt die Sonne Auge” from Das Rheingold. 
Here they are at rehearsal Tuesday night.
