We are happy to have the great harp player Diana Rowan return to the dinner/concert series for a solo performance. Diana moved to the bay area from Cyrpus after growing up in Northern Ireland almost 2 decades ago. Her immersion in the study of musical forms from Turkey, the Middle East and  Eastern Europe as well as her native Ireland have led Diana to be one of the more interesting virtuoso harp players around. She recently received her Phd in music as well as being granted the Golden Gear Best Performing Artist in the bay area!
