The Heavenly Harp duo to perform at Bethlehem Lutheran Church July 25

The Heavenly Harp duo, featuring harpists Karin and Joy Gunderson along with other family members, will be giving a concert at 7 p.m. July 25 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church.

Author of the book Encounters with Heaven: Stories of God’s Surprising Presence, Karin Gunderson will share stories of Divine Presence from her work as a hospice harpist and peaceful music with her family featuring harp, flute, and vocals.

Joy Gunderson, who at age 11 was already performing the Handel Harp Concerto, is now one of the top harpists in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area. Gunderson, a graduate of St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota with a church music degree, plays with professional mastery and sensitivity that will truly inspire you. In Minneapolis she studied harp with the Minnesota Orchestra’s harpist, Kathy Kienzle, who has won numerous awards in teaching harp. Gunderson won the Philharmonia Concerto Competition in her junior year of college and also had the honor of being chosen to play a concerto with the St. Olaf Orchestra her senior year.
