Who is Deborah Henson-Conant?
Composer, Performer and mentor to thousands of harpists through Hip Harp Academy – Deborah Henson-Conant is all about the joy of creative expression – whether she’s performing a one-woman show, or appearing with a symphony orchestra with her original symphonic music. She uses her wearable-electric harp as a partner in music and story-telling – and coaches other artists in how to express themselves with music and tell their own stories. This under-3-minute video and TEDx talk gives you taste of that creative energy.
In her TEDx talk, DHC tells the story of decades of perseverance and persistence in how she conceived of the “DHC” electric harp and her decades-long collaboration with the CAMAC Harp company to bring her vision to a new generation of players. Learn more here
