Harp Fusion Comes to Gold Canyon

HarpFusion will perform on Friday, December 14 in Gold Canyon. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Gold Canyon United Methodist Church, 6640 S Kings Ranch Road.

From the University of Arizona comes HarpFusion, one of the most innovative and exciting harp ensembles on the concert scene and the largest in the world. Their name reflects the unique fusion of many styles and cultures represented in their repertoire, which will include seasonal compositions for this special holiday performance. The ensemble tours the world and has included harpists from Taiwan, Japan, Egypt, Russia, Puerto Rico, Canada and the United States.

The ensemble’s new leader is Canada’s Michelle Gott, an award winning and versatile harpist, lauded for her “exquisite playing” by The Ottawa Citizen. As an orchestral musician, Ms. Gott has played with the New York Philharmonic, Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops. She has performed extensively for Broadway productions like “The Producers,” “The Fantasticks” and for artists such as Diana Krall and Olivia Newton-John.

You may purchase advance adult tickets for $25 and student tickets for $5 on our website, www.goldcanyonarts.org, or go to ticket outlets at Canyon Rose Storage, 6405 S. Kings Ranch Rd. in Gold Canyon, and at the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce on the Apache Trail. Tickets at the door are $30.

The Gold Canyon Arts Council, a non-profit organization, promotes the performing and visual arts and funds student arts education through tutorials, workshops and master classes provided by all of our performing artists. We are supported in part by grants from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, WESTAF, the National Endowment for the Arts, local corporations and businesses.
