Heidi Van Hoesen Gorton Recital - 11/14/10

In November 2010, our chapter was proud to present AHS Concert Artist Heidi Van Hoesen Gorton in a solo recital at the Colburn School in downtown Los Angeles.  She played a wonderful variety of virtuosic music showcasing many moods and styles. The entire first half of the program was dedicated to the works of living composers, while the second half featured composers of the eighteenth to twentieth centuries...


This concert was presented in conjunction with the American Harp Society's Young Artist Program, in which the winner of the American Harp Society competition Young Professional division also serves for two years as the AHS Concert Artist.

Recently hailed by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette as a performer that “play[s] with a flair that we are coming to know well”, harpist Heidi Van Hoesen Gorton is one of the most acclaimed soloist, chamber and orchestral musicians of her generation. Actively competing in domestic and international competitions, she was most recently awarded first place in the Young Professional Division of the American Harp Society (AHS) National Competition in June 2009. Also named the AHS Young Concert Artist, she will present solo recitals in the U.S. through 2011. Ms. Van Hoesen Gorton is Principal Harp with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra (Connecticut) and has performed with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Ms. Van Hoesen Gorton completed her undergraduate degree in harp performance and will graduate with a master's degree in harp performance (2011), both from the Juilliard School. She is a present student of Nancy Allen, and has studied with Gretchen Van Hoesen and Anne Marguerite-Michaud in Pittsburgh, as well as Elizabeth Fontan-Binoche in France.
