An eclectic blend of austere serenity and kinetic vibrancy, Amelia Romano takes what is known about conventional harp and surpasses every time. Pulling from her roots in the cultural hotbed of San Francisco, Amelia not only plays music from the repertoire but reprises them and creates originals. Latin American music, jazz and classical are all genres that she touches but her music defines its own path.
Currently pursuing a masters degree in classical lever harp performance at San Francisco State University, under the tutelage of pedal harp instructor, Karen Gottlieb, she finds deep satisfaction composing and arranging for her chamber music ensembles – forging new sounds and directions in the global lever harp community.
