Savannah Philharmonic Presents:
An Evening in Paris
January 22 | 7:30 PM
No passport or air travel required! Let harpists Carolyn Munford and Vonda Darr transport you to Paris with an evening of fabulous French classics. Hear the famed and ethereal “Clair de Lune,” a sultry tango and rhumba by Carlos Salzedo, as well as Ravel’s shimmering Introduction and Allegro — all arranged for harp duet. The harp duo also will treat you to a catchy and invigorating contemporary work called “Submerged” by three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated composer Miguel del Aguila. This one-hour concert has no intermission.
Harpists Vonda Darr and Carolyn Munford have enjoyed performing together for nearly 20 years. Carolyn began taking harp lessons from Vonda when she moved to Augusta, Georgia, at age 15. Thus began a mentorship and friendship that has spawned innumerable recitals, teaching projects, and ensemble collaborations over the years. Carolyn and Vonda are currently principal harpists with their respective symphonies, and can often be seen performing together around the southeast. Realizing a mutual love for beautiful melodies, orchestral harp repertoire, and discovering which modern pop music sounds best on the harp, they relish every opportunity they have to play together.
