ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Somewhere in Time" won Third Place JPF Indie Music Award as "Best Solo Instrumental CD 2006-2009! Virginia's music always includes an eclectic mix that is both romantic and fun. Take it on a long drive or enjoy it when you plan a romantic and friendly dinner party! You'll enjoy solo harp as well a harp and flute, playing beloved classics, popular Broadway and movie themes and even a bit of celtic music.

Virginia played the piano as a child, taking up the harp in high school so she could play in the orchestra. She soon won a full scholarship from the Samuel Mosher Foundation to attend Stephens College, Columbia, Missouri. There she studied with acclaimed classical/jazz harpist, Mimi Allen, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Harp Performance.

Virginia studied both the French and Salzedo schools of harp, but had to discover on her own how to make a living as a harpist. Determined, she entered the emerging world of “pop harp” in the 1970’s performing in major resort hotels, restaurants and private homes. Over time her very special musical style emerged through a repertoire of the Classics, Broadway and Movie Themes and everyone’s favorites.

She now teaches harp at Sweet Briar and Lynchburg College. She founded Harp Song of the Blue Ridge, a delightful ensemble of harpists living in and around the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. She, her husband, Dave, and their boxers are enjoying the country life!

As an orchestral harpist she has performed with legendary entertainers Sammy Davis Jr., Tina Turner, Jerry Lewis, Melissa Manchester, Carmen Dragon, Rudy Friml, Kenny Rogers and even Jack Benny (at a very young age!).

She particularly enjoys teaching the harp at her Nelson County studio and is Adjunct Harp Instructor at Lynchburg College and Sweet Briar College. Her students, age 6 to 82, play the harp for a million reasons . . . to play in hospitals or for hospice; to earn a degree in music; to play for church or weddings; or simply because they’ve always wanted to the play the harp.

Virginia Schweninger is a member of the Charlottesville Music Teachers Association and the American Harp Society, and is a Nelson County Master Gardener.

Somewhere In Time is lovely
Wonderful CD by Virginia Schweninger, most pieces performed on a Wurlitzer harp restored by Howard Bryan. Nice variety of music, all played with great sensitivity and focused energy.
