“Music takes people out of this world and into another for a period of time where hopefully they can experience the emotions of joy and sadness and nostalgia, but in a really artistically empowering way.  So you might have tears streaming down your face, but you’re still enjoying the music.”  – Sharon Isbin


It’s a program filled with the music of plucked instruments today – guitar, harp, and harpsichord.  I hope these performances will fill your imagination and lift your heart.
