This week I sat down with Liz Huston, a harpist and concert producer specializing in new music who recently moved from Philadelphia to the Los Angeles area and maintains a busy bi-coastal schedule. She shared with me about the physical trials of moving the harp, an instrument where injury is not uncommon, and her excitement and enthusiasm for producing and playing contemporary compositions.
