Passing the Baton
As we move from August into September, a change in personnel is taking place in the Minnesota Orchestra's harp section. Kathy Kienzle, who has been a member of the Orchestra since 1993, retires from her role of Principal Harp. Stepping into her shoes is Marguerite Lynn Williams, who has most recently served as principal harp of the Lyric Opera of Chicago. A harp duet is a rarity, so it's a special treat that these two Minnesota Orchestra principal harpists were able to play together for our audiences. In these videos, enjoy Kathy and Marguerite's performances of Tango and Rumba by Carlos Salzedo.
