“Yo-Yo Ma of the harp”

Vogue Magazine

Bridget Kibbey is in demand for her innovative, virtuosic performances that expand the expressive range of the harp. As a soloist and collaborator with today’s top artists, she crosses genres to emphasize and elevate the harp’s role through centuries and cultures of music. The recipient of a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant and the 2020 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, Alexi Kenney is building a career that defies categorization. He is equally at home creating experimental programs and commissioning new works, soloing with major orchestras, and collaborating with some of the most celebrated musicians of our time. Join these two extraordinary artists as they explore the moving lines of counterpoint through four centuries of music!
