About The Harp Ensemble:

In the early 1990's the studio of Serena O'Meara would rehearse harp ensembles to perform at functions of various school districts. In 1996, an ensemble of harpists from the Eau Claire Area School District performed their first concert at the Chippewa Valley Museum. The ensemble was officially named The Harp Ensemble in 1997 and was opened to school-age harp students from any school district. Since then, there have been 46 Middle and High School students who have worked tirelessly to learn two one-hour shows of music each year. Those students have represented 15 different School Districts: Barron, Bethel Christian, Boyceville, Cameron, Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, Eau Claire Christian, Fall Creek, Glenwood City, La Crosse, Menomonie, New Richmond, Osseo, Regis Catholic, and Spring Valley.
