Hear the harp in Danville

November 10, 2012 by  

The ‘Lunch with the Arts’ event this month features Elaine Cook, an accomplished harpist, presenting the ‘History of the Harp’.

Cook will guide guests on a tour of how the harp evolved from primitive civilization to today’s more modern grand concert pedal harp. While learning about this wondrous instrument, guests will be able to enjoy their lunch.

The stringed instrument has a history set in many cultures and it retains many of these aspects today. There will be information about how the harp got its name and a demonstration on the French harp, pointing out the unique qualities and characteristics of the harp music of today.

Guests are likely to leave the event with a new understanding and appreciation for this grand instrument and the various aspects that keep it unique among the stringed instruments. This event is being hosted at the Community Arts Center, which is a non-profit facility used for art education and all types of arts. The complex has space for events, exhibits, and performances. Lunch can be purchased for $10 per person.

Promotion through print services may have been used to promote this event to residents in this area and the surrounding regions. Admission is $5 per person and everyone is welcome to an event that is bound to have them harping on for weeks.

The latest Lunch with the Arts will be happening on Wednesday, November 14, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm at the Community Arts Center of Danville located at 401 W. Main Street in Danville, Kentucky.
