After a 20-month pandemic hiatus, the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra (NPO) is returning to in-person performances. The theme of their opening concerts is “Festive Return”. This is a celebration of both the music and musicians who are finally playing together again after nearly two years of solitary practice and rehearsals on Zoom.

One of those musicians is harpist Liana Alpino – and her celebration includes playing “Baroque Flamenco”, the 3rd, fiery movement my “Soñando en Español” concerto, “Baroque Flamenco” with the NPO.

In January, Liana won the Grand Prize in the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2021 Concerto Competition in the Adult Category.

Harpist Liana Alpino performs “Baroque Flamenco”
with the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra

The concert includes works by Dmitri Shostakovich, Paul Creston, Florence Price and Deborah Henson-Conant.  



Liana is a professional harpist based in Nashville, TN where she maintains an active performing schedule and a private teaching studio and regularly performs with artists such as Keith and Kristyn Getty, Kathy Mattea, ABBA’s original band members and Roy “Futureman” Wooten.

In her spare time, she passionately composes new works for harp, as well as working on her signature pop music arrangements for the harp.

Congratulations to Liana and to all the musicians of the Nashville Philharmonic for stepping back on stage with this series of Festive Returns. If you live anywhere near NashVille, I hope you’ll be there to cheer Liana on.
