Passing the Torch!
The website Harp Spectrum - Exploring the World
of the Harp, is almost 24 years old! Founded in 1999 by the late
Patricia Jaeger and myself, Joyce Rice, it has grown to encompass articles
on historical, folk, pop and classical harp by knowledgeable, experienced
people in all those fields. It also has a large section of general harp
information Ė makers, repairers, composers, harp history, publications,
societies, and much more.
Iíve had a wonderful time being in touch with so many
harpists and harpers, gathering articles and writing some myself, and from
correspondence Iíve received, I feel weíve been fulfilling our mission of
exploring the harp world, as well as helping budding composers learn to
write well for the harp.
Now itís time to pass the torch and find a successor to
continue our mission and perhaps carve new paths.
(Our webmaster, Bob Zawalich, will also be retiring
once we find someone to take over his duties.)
