Irving Park Fine Arts Committee presents acclaimed harpist Ben Melsky in a solo recital. Admission is free, though donations are welcome. A reception follows the concert.
Ben is Executive Director and harpist of the Ensemble Dal Niente with whom he has performed nationally in concerts and residencies. In addition, he is the principal harp for the Joffrey Ballet and Ann Arbor Symphony and has played with the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Chicago Opera Theater, Grant Park Symphony and Chicago Philharmonic among many others.
Ben is a favorite of Fine Arts audiences, having performed several times in the past. He will challenge any pre-conceived notions you may have about the harp's capabilities. Don't miss the chance to hear an accomplished musician in a relaxed and casual setting.
