The New England Irish Harp Orchestra presents The Celtic Harp: Magic and Legend

Regina and members of the orchestra will share the magic and legend of the harp, performing a variety of celtic music, and will also have a "harp petting zoo" at the conclusion of the musical program, so that individuals can try their own hand at creating the mystical magical sounds that only a harp can produce. This event is all ages- fun for the whole family! No registration required. This program is generously sponsored by The Westwood Women's Club and the Westwood Cultural Council.
