In 2010, harpists Kathryn Andrews and Kristi Shade began searching for music for their newly formed ensemble and found this area of harp repertoire yet to be fully explored in a contemporary setting. They are helping create a new body of work composed for the modern harp that highlights the versatility and uniqueness of the instrument. Coincidentally, Katie and Kristi were both born on November 5, 1982, making them both Scorpios. They met in New York City where they received their Master’s degrees at the Manhattan School of Music. They have embraced their Zodiac alignment by using their talent and passion to team up and form this unique duo.
