Mosaic celebrates the harp

Kwantlen Polytechnic and Trinity Western University alumna Maria Whelton will bring her harp to St. George’s Anglican Church in Fort Langley on May 15. The concert begins at 2:30 p.m. Admission is $10 at the door or $20 per family.

Mosaic, a concert featuring Maria Whelton, promises to offer “baroque, blues and beyond” when the Langley harpist performs at St. George’s Anglican Church on Sunday, May 15.

Whelton studied music for two years at Kwantlen Polytechnic University before earning a degree in piano and harp at Trinity Western University.

“I picked the two least portable (instruments),” laughed the musician.

“There are many days when I wish I’d taken up the piccolo.”

Although she has continued to play piano, Whelton said there is something very special about the harp.

“It’s a beautiful instrument — very unusual.

“There’s something very pure and soothing about it,” she said.

Whelton’s concert begins at 2:30 p.m. on May 15 in the church at 9160 Church St. in Fort Langley.

Admission is $10 at the door or $20 per family.
