"Rosanna has a passion for music. Through her harp, she skillfully creates touching experience for her audience to enjoy. Her repertoires are thoughtfully designed and her music is captivating. Her performance instantly connects you to your heart and soul... so magical and powerful that you would beg for encores."
"Rosanna - these are absolutely beautiful!!! I'm amazed at how well
you have them turning out. Completely impressed, thank you."
From A. Smith, on a commisioned piece inspired by a music box and a harp arrangement of Train's Marry Me
"Thank you so much for the beautiful harp sound that made our wedding ceremony
so magical. We also really appreciate that you can play our favourite song,
Married Life, and made our wedding more memorable. Once again, many thanks!"
"Rosanna made our wedding day all the more memorable with her light
yet precise playing of the harp. Walking down the aisle to Rosanna performing
Pachelbel's Canon was the most magical experience that a bride could possibly
wish for. Following our ceremony, our guests were further captivated by
Rosanna's enchanting music while they enjoyed canapés and refreshments.
Looking back at our special day, the harp was the perfect instrument and
Rosanna's talent ensured a wonderful time for all."
I began my musical journey since age of eight. Classically trained on piano, I become fascinated with string instruments and have received training on guzheng (Chinese harp), and later, Celtic harp and pedal harp.
With its resonating tones, harp sound is naturally soothing and has a soulful quality. When incorporated with different rhythms and styles, the music can be transformed to be dynamic and engaging. Besides playing classical and Celtic music, I enjoy creating arrangements from traditional music, adding a modern quality to familiar tunes; as well as exploring contemporary style and Latin America style music, taking a multicultural approach to my pursue of harp music.
I have won awards including the 2011 Gold Medal of Royal Conservatory of Music (for harp), and scholarhship for Féis Seattle (Gaelic music and harp). I am currently studing with Elizabeth Volpé Bligh, Vancouver Symphony Principal Harpist. I have received Celtic harp training with Alys Howe, Sharlene Wallace and was part of harp duet, Celtic Strings, and member of the Prussin Music Harp Performance Ensemble found by Alys Howe.
