Praised for their "unfailing virtuosity, musicianship, and appealing stage presence", the Dallas Harp Quartet is quickly emerging as one of the most engaging new ensembles of the South.
Comprised of four of the country's premiere harpists, Emily Levin, Grace Browning, Cheryl Losey Feder, and Karen Abrahamson Thomas, the members of the quartet are individually sought after as soloists, ensemble musicians, pedagogues, and teaching artists. In the fall of 2016, the four harpists were hand-picked for the opening concert of the Bancroft Family Concert Series at the Dallas Museum of Art. After receiving enthusiastic reviews from their audience and critics, and discovering a exceptional chamber music chemistry, it didn't take long for the quartet to realize this was just the beginning of a new passion. In response to the refugee humanitarian crisis, the quartet launched a series of benefit concerts in the spring of 2017 entitled "United We Play", featuring leading musicians from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Dallas Opera, which raised major capital and awareness for the International Rescue Committee (rescue.org) and Refugee Services of Texas (rstx.org). As an ensemble, the DHQ aims to showcase the versatility of the Harp Quartet, to share and expand its wide array of repertoire, and to bring the highest level of performance to their community and beyond. Their upcoming 2017-2018 season includes a featured performance in the Lyon & Healy Harptacular series, outreach performances for The Dallas Opera, and a whirlwind tour of Washington D.C. in April 2018.
