My world changed in a single moment.
I’m a composer and performer. I play the electric harp and I was a performing as a soloist at the “Picnic Pops” with the Grand Rapids Symphony in Michigan. After the show a man walked up to me and said,
“What I saw out there on the stage, I want the whole world to see.”
That man was Peter Wege and together we created a DVD & CD that won a Grammy Nomination for best Classical Crossover album, a video that aired on PBS stations all across the U.S. But that was short-lived. As DVDs and CDs gave way to streaming, the project became hidden – and Peter’s dream of sharing this with the whole world was fading …. until now.
Now – 15 years later – finally the whole world CAN see it … but only for a limited time
Thanks to the American Federation of Musicians, we can show this video FREE to the world for a short time as a fundraiser for The Grand Rapids symphony. Join us FREE, then give what you can — and share the joy of what one symphony can do with one irrepressible soloist – when the power of philanthropy creates magic.
