Helen Barley Harp Recital – PLUS – have a go at playing the harp
September 16, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:15 am
As part of St Mary’s contribution to Heritage Open Day we are delighted to announce the return of Helen Barley. She will be playing her harp in the church from 1030-1115 on 16th September. Helen has also kindly agreed to allow people to have a try at playing the harp after her performance. This will be from 1115 in the Community Room adjacent to the church.
Hear Helen Play – how can this music not inspire you!!!
Helen is a graduate of the Royal Manchester College of music, later doing post graduate studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Her work with a group of autistic children led mher to buy a small harp as an experiment. Both the children and Helen completely fell in love with the harp and so a period of intensive training followed, including lessons from some of the country’s top harpists.
Helen now plays with several local orchestras and enjoys singing at weddings and other functions. Her unique style of singing and playing covers many different genres of music, offering a wide range of styles in my repertoire. Helen also teaches harp and is director of the successful 12 – strong Dudley Harp Ensemble.
