Maria McNamee, harp

A UK Harp Association Emerging Artist, Maria McNamee is a harpist from Ireland and began playing the harp at the age of nine, embracing both traditional Irish and classical music. In 2021 she graduated with a first-class honour's degree and the TCL silver medal from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. She also received a distinction in her masters degree, having studied with Gabriella Dall’Olio and Frances Kelly.

Prior to her studies in London, Maria spent six years at Chetham’s School of Music learning from Marie Leenhardt and Eleanor Hudson. 

Maria is a keen orchestral player, currently co-principal harp of the Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra and has been performing with the Ulster Orchestra. Maria also performs as part of many chamber groups, including Isla Duo (cello and harp), Green Time Folk (fiddle, bodhran, lever harp) and the Aura Harp Duo (two pedal harps). The Aura Duo (with harpist Clara Gatti Comini) was recently selected as one of the UK Harp Association's Emerging Artists and will be devising a series of recitals to take place in Autumn 2024.

Gloria Rappo, harp

Gloria Rappo is a fourth year harp student at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, studying with Gabriella Dall’Olio and Frances Kelly. She previously studied organ, choral conducting and Gregorian notation at the National Institute of Sacred Music in Padova.

Gloria has performed with orchestras throughout Italy and the UK, including Orchestra Filarmonica E. Segattini, Orchestra Filarmonica Italiana, the London Chamber Orchestra and the Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra.

She also gives regular chamber and solo recitals at venues including the Queen's House, the Chapel of St Peter and St Paul at the Old Royal Naval College and St Alfege Church.
