Salzedo Harp Duo to Perform at Westminster College

The Salzedo Harp Duo will perform at Westminster College Tuesday, March 30, at 7:30 p.m. in Wallace Memorial Chapel.

Duo harpists Jody Guinn and Nancy Lendrim have performed together in harp ensembles and orchestras for more than 20 years.  They both studied with world-renowned Alice Chaifoux at the Cleveland Institute of Music and at the Salzedo School in Camden, Maine.  They are also both active in the American Harp Society, holding various offices.  Lendrim is currently president of the Northwest Chapter of the AHS.

Shortly after the duo was formed in 2000 to promote the music of Carlos Salzedo, it was awarded a Mellon Foundation grant, as coordinated by the Toledo Symphony, to research and prepare Salzedo's little-known duo harp repertoire for public performance.  In 2002 the duo was invited to perform some of this music at the Eighth World Harp congress in Geneva, Switzerland.

The program includes "Pavane" by an unknown composer, "L'Indifferente et La Joyeuse" by Rameau, "Sixth French Suite" by Bach, "Short Stories" by Salzado, "Malaguena" by Lecuona, :Clair de Lune" by Debussy, "Spanish Dance No. 5" by Granados, "Song Without Words" by Mendelssohn, "Steel"by Salzedo and "Parvis" by Andres.

The event is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact the Westminster College Department of Music at (724) 946-7270.
