The Harp Foundation's 4th Annual Harps in the Garden

By Myra Richman

The Harp Foundation held its fourth annual "Harps in the Garden" event on Sunday, November 8th on the Scottsdale grounds of the beautiful garden studio of prominent architect Vern Swaback and his wife Cille.

With several harpists arranged throughout the lushly grown gardens, guests enjoyed wine and hors d'oeuvres while listening to the mellow music which soothed the soul of those lucky enough to be there.  This is certainly one of the most peaceful, yet distinctive events in the Valley.

Attend stressed; leave relaxed!

The Harp Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, provides therapeutic harp music for the essential healing, comfort, and well-being of individuals in crisis or with special needs.

Since its inception, The Harp Foundation has provided over 10,000 hours of therapeutic harp music to individuals and their families in the Greater Phoenix area and throughout Maricopa County.
