A Little Harping

On Saturday, I headed up north (again!) to meet up with some weirdo harpists (that’s meant in the nicest way).  Almost every month, local harpists get together to play, chat and eat.  It’s a pretty informal thing, but gives us old harpists a chance to play for people now that we’re out of the recital/symphony/performance stuff that we did as kids/young adults.

I usually don’t go to the meetings because they are kind of far away.  But, for some reason, I agreed a few weeks ago to show up to play with some other harpists.  I didn’t realize that we would actually be rehearsing until Saturday morning.  So I jumped in the car without brushing my hair (no surprise) and got on the road.

Apparently, it was too early for lipstick or smiling.

When I got there about an hour and a half later, I met up with this crazy lady.

Hi mom!!!

And we decided we should take a picture with the tiny blue harp because it matches my hair.

Once all the girls showed up, it was time to play.

We went through 5 or 6 pieces and it was pretty fun.  I, of course, need to actually practice in order to play some of them, but we still had a good time.  Nothing like sight reading!

My mom made tiny little red velvet cupcakes and Misty also brought blueberry muffins!

So good!

  1. This made me laugh because of the Portlandia episode where they smashed the harp trying to fit it into a tiny hybrid. You shouldn’t do that.

  2. You were made to sit behind the harp!

    Those mini-cupcakes were so good that I had to skip a pizza party; because I couldn’t eat any more junk!

  4. Looks fun! Love the blue harp (and your inappropriate hand gesture) 🙂

    Classy ladies playing harps (except the one with her middle finger raised).
    When do I get to hear you play your harp??

  6. Please tell me you packed your harp in the car. Photo required
