Harpist Elisabeth Remy Johnson offers works for harp by women composers from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries.

In addition to her orchestral works, Ms. Remy Johnson has an active career as a soloist and chamber musician, performing across North America and throughout the world. The recipient of numerous awards and prizes, including first place in the American Harp Society and American String Teachers Association competitions, she is a graduate of Harvard.
