Come enjoy a festive holiday concert featuring harpers, singers, and a wonderful mandolin player!  This is a benefit for a wonderful local nonprofit, the Northwest Pilot Project, which “provides housing services for seniors ages 55 and older who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.”  NWPP assists elders in living their lives in safety and dignity, which is more important than ever in difficult economic times.  Kathleen Staub, a friend of mine and a well-known, beloved local lever harp teacher, is the organizing force behind this event.

Harpers for Housing Benefit Concert

A previous year's concert.

Every fall a group of harpers from the Portland area gathers to participate in a benefit concert.  In recent years the organization chosen as the recipient of funds raised is the local housing charity, the Northwest Pilot Project, which offers assistance to elders 55 and older who are in danger of homelessness.  This is an organization I feel delighted to support.

Here’s the news on this year’s event, coordinated by Kathleen Staub and Dale Rhodes:

Volunteers, largely lever harp players, will be performing.  I’m still choosing a piece or two to play, but had better decide soon.

Have a good evening.
