“True artistry in tandem” and “poetry in motion” are what audiences are saying to describe the playing styles of duo harpists, Mindy Cutcher and Janet Witman. “Principally Harps!” blends the talents and experiences of two of America’s finest harpists in presentations of virtuosity, distinct style and impeccable ensemble. Their varied programs include stunning adaptations of great “hits” from opera, ballet and orchestral repertoire: “Le Cid”, “Swan Lake” to beloved favorites, “Clair de Lune”, “Blue Danube”; from original works of iconic harpist Carlos Salzedo to popular works of Joplin, Bacharach and Gershwin.
“Principally Harps!” offers audiences a unique opportunity to see and hear concert grand harps on center stage, as opposed to “hidden” among the instruments in an orchestra.

Their programs are accessible to both young and old; experienced and casual concert goers.
