Louise Johnson gave her first performance with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the age of 14, later joining the orchestra as a permanent member, and was appointed Principal Harp in 1985. She regularly appears as a soloist with the orchestra: performing Debussy’s Danses sacres et profane with conductor Mark Elder in 1998; Mozart’s Flute and Harp Concerto with James Galway (1990), Janet Webb (2005) and Emma Sholl (2011); and Spohr’s Concertante for violin and harp with former SSO concertmaster Michael Dauth (2006); Hindemith’s Concerto for winds and harp (2013); the premiere of Lee Bracegirdle’s Legends of the Old Castle (2014); and Tan Dun’s Nu Shu – The Secret Songs of Women (2017).
Louise will bring us a light-hearted program of harps through the ages featuring her own green irish harp, blue electric harp and Margaret Curtis's superb concert harp.
