on Sunday, May 19, 2024, members and guests gathered in a lovely garden patio in Monrovia to enjoy performances by the talented young harpists who recently received scholarship awards from the LA Chapter's Valeria Finzi Memorial scholarship fund.

We also had a spectacular performance by composer/recording artist Alfredo Rolando Ortiz, with a vivacious performance of several different South American music styles, on his Venezuelan harp!2024 05 19 audience
