WurlitzerHarps.net is dedicated to gathering information about Wurlitzer harps owned and used worldwide today, and to further disseminating historical information about the instruments themselves. With your help, we want to locate as many extant harps in order to rebuild a serial number list in order to support further research activities.
We will not share any information about you unless you give us express permission.
The three scholar/musicians who are collaborating to make this project a success are as follows:
Dr. Shelley Batt Wiest, retired musicology professor, harp teacher/scholar, and author now living in Phoenix, AZ (www.HarpsArizona.com).
Mr. Donald Hilsberg, principal harpist with the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, graduate of the Manhattan School of Music, active performer, enthusiastic teacher, and collector/restorer of historic pedal harps.
Dr. Heidi Tims Hernandez, solo recording artist, international dazzling performer, sought after harp teacher, and regular substitute harpist with Phoenix Symphony.
Now that we've piqued your interest to join others in singing the praises of Wurlitzer Harps, please strive to find others who own Wurlitzers and ask them to send their information to us!
Please contact us at anytime! We look forward to hearing from you.
