Classical Notes

The Harp Store

Posted at 2:09 PM on March 9, 2007 by Rex Levang

Here's a radio piece that takes a look at an L. A. store specializing in harps. (Go to Offramp and find the "Harper Woods" story.)

It's not strictly classical, but it deserves a place here because it mentions harps, glissandi, pitch classes, a symphony orchestra -- also because in its unpretentious way, it's very effective radio.
