Praised for her “superb technical acumen and sensitive musicality” (South Florida Classical Review), Grace Browning has established herself as a prominent orchestral harpist, avid soloist, engaging chamber musician, and passionate harp instructor. After spending three years with the New World Symphony in Miami Beach, Grace won the principal harp position with the Dallas Opera Orchestra in 2014, bringing her to the great city of Dallas. One year later, Grace became a full-time opera harpist after being appointed Principal Harpist of the Santa Fe Opera, where she now performs in the summers. In addition to performing with the Dallas and Santa Fe Opera, Grace's 2017-2018 season includes upcoming performances with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and Houston Symphony as guest principal harp during their 2018 European tour. She has also had the privilege of performing in several summer festivals including the Tanglewood Music Center, Aspen Music Festival, National Repertory Orchestra, and Pacific Music Festival in Japan. Besides performing, Grace teaches a steadily growing studio of 12 wonderful students at the Suzuki Music Institute of Dallas. Grace studied at The Juilliard School (M.M. 2011) with renowned harp pedagogue Nancy Allen after receiving her undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan School of Music in 2009. In her spare time, Grace enjoys practicing hot yoga, spoiling her pup, and eating tapas.
