Helen Webby will unpack her harps (a concert grand and the carbon-fibre Irish harp), and present an intimate world tour of music from Wales, Ireland, Scotland, Bach and the Baroque, to Paris and La Belle Epoque.
This concert will showcase Helen’s latest CD Pluck, with NZ composers Douglas Lilburn, Mark Smythe and Ruru Karaitiana.
Commissioned after the Christchurch Earthquakes, Pluckwas nominated for Best Classical CD in the 2013 NZ Music Awards. Pluck was also the soundtrack for the film Harps Make Fine Companions, which recently screened on Television New Zealand.
Principal Harp with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, Helen’s dancing fingers will pluck her harp, and tug your heartstrings, in a magical night of music.
“….Helen Webby is not only a wonderful harpist, but also an excellent presenter. Her voice was clear, easily heard, and she was enthusiastic and warm.’
