Sharon Hanjian Rondeau, Harpist
Having retired from public performance in December 2016, harpist Sharon Hanjian Rondeau is offering recordings of some of the many varied selections she played at weddings, receptions, and other special events over her 28-year professional career which was cut short due to an injury.
Listeners may choose their favorites from among Sharon’s classical and Celtic repertoire played in her unique and articulated style. Please visit the online store for samples of downloadable songs for your playlist.
Over the years, Sharon learned many of the Celtic songs by ear from vocals and other styles and adapted them for her instrument. Her arrangement of the wedding favorite, Johann Pachelbel’s “Celebrated Canon in D” was derived from the desire to present it in all of its simplicity yet project a full, bright sound in a church or at an outdoor setting so that every note was heard.
With lifting and moving the harp Sharon’s only challenge, please inquire about high-quality custom audio or visual recordings from her wide repertoire or of your special selection, and make sure to visit her YouTube channel here.
Custom sound tracks are also available upon request.
Sharon continues to be available for harp instruction for both children and adults in a traditional setting at her home in eastern Connecticut and by Skype. She has also been notating and publishing her arrangements for lever and pedal harp, which are available at SheetMusicPlus and ScoreExchange.
