We here at YCN are very much fans of the arts, which provide so much creativity and innovation to our region. With that in mind, this past weekend, we attended a concert by Newbury harpist Katelyn Croft, to benefit the purchase of a Concert Grand Pedal Harp which she will need when she graduates from Eastman School of Music in Rochester to further her professional career.
Katelyn is currently a Junior at the university and this weekend she played 15 selections to a crowd of over 50.
She is one of only 10 Harp students at the exclusive Eastman school of Music. She is continuing her fundraising efforts for this instrument and has a Facebook page set up for anyone interested in helping with this purchase which costs $33k.
