On Monday, June 23rd at 11amthe 2014 AHS Conference presents “Strings of Passion” by Deborah Henson-Conant –  music, ideas and humor in a presentation that is both concert and lecture, both listening and interactive for the audience.


It plays out 7 principles, string by string, using the unusual instrument that was invented for me – a 32-strings electric harness harp – to show how they resonate and harmonize with each other: These principles include invention, collaboration, leadership, structure, character, exploration — and lift-off, as an idea becomes reality.
