AMELIA ROMANO – Harp
Harpist and teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area, Amelia Romano uses music as a medium for social change. Having played in a variety of harp ensembles, duets, and as a solo harpist, she explores new avenues of multicultural, contemporary and original music. Her compositions and sound are influenced by her experiences and exposure to music styles in the San Francisco Bay Area, and year in South Africa.
She began studying harp at age nine with Diana Stork and later Cheryl Ann Fulton. Amelia recently worked as a music teacher, educator, and school coordinator for youth with the Playing for Change Foundation at Ntonga Music School outside Cape Town, South Africa, from July 2010-2011www.harpntonga.blogspot.com. Since returning to the Bay Area she has continued instructing privately and directing harp ensembles in underserved communities.
