LA Harp GLAONS 2

Sept. 9th, 2017 – GLAONS Oncology Summit

Events and weddings are lovely, but there’s something very gratifying about playing harp for doctors and nurses in the Oncology field.

The event lasted a majority of the day, starting …

This was hands down one of the coolest events I ever played.

Once again, I found myself onstage with the famous Dariush, a well-known Persian singer-superstar. My harp was placed front and center onstage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles LA Live.
