My name is Dr. Shirley Meyer Blankenship harpist/composer. After years of encountering harp parts that were either awkwardly written and/or impossible to play, I initiated The Harp Legacy Project. I am in the process of presenting my website to composers who may be interested in composing works for the harp, or who have composed works that have not been edited by a harpist.
I invite you to take a peak at: www.theharplegacyproject.com My mission is to assist composers in the creation of viable and idiomatic harp notation in order to make their scores more accessible to potential performers. You will find "before and after" pages on my website along with explanatory commentary and a complete set of "before and after" pages for Progeny, a monumental work for cello and harp by Matthew Fields. http://www.matthewfields.net/Progeny/Progeny_BeforenAfter.pd
