WHAT: Spring Fling/Tribute Concert
WHERE: Glendale First United Methodist Church
WHEN: Sunday, May 22, 2011. 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
HOW MUCH: Donations kindly accepted!

Each spring the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Harp Society hosts what is called, their 'Spring Fling', an event which acts as a fundraiser for the chapter and for the Valeria Finzi Scholarship Fund.  It always includes food, a relaxed setting for harpists to mingle and performances by the recent harpists awarded that year’s Valeria Finzi Memorial Scholarship.

This year's Spring Fling is especially important in that it is dedicated to the memory of Dorothy Remsen, a wonderful lady and outstanding musician of the harp world, who passed away in October, 2010. The event will be held at the Glendale First United Methodist Church, whose Christmas Eve services Dorothy graced with her harp playing for fifty years.

Performances at this year's Spring Fling include those awarded the 2011 Valeria Finzi Memorial Scholarships (see below) as well as performance by harpist Allison Allport and flutist Amy Tatum,  harpist Maria Casale and renowned organist Ladd Thomas.
