On Saturday December 15, 2018, harpists from all over Southern California gathered in the lobby of the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena to enjoy playing holiday music together, delighting the staff and visitors of the hospital!  Harpists of all ages and experience levels, playing many different types of harps, are welcome to participate in our Extravaganzas. This was the 21st annual Holiday Extravaganza organized and led by the tireless Elaine Litster.
