Playing the harp!

Harpist, Sabra, with her harp. It is about 6 feet tall!

Listening to harpist, Sabra Thomas, talk about how the harp makes sound. She played several songs for the children, including "Clair de Lune," a piece about a swam, and a storytelling piece about fairies!

Everyone who wanted a turn got a chance to strum the harp. Sabra shows them how to use their first finger and point it down while moving it across the strings.
