Bowerbird is pleased to present Liminal States, an ongoing series of late night, live streamed concerts intended to be listened to as you fall asleep. Aiming to center and calm, the musicians will seek to lead listeners to that magic space between awake and asleep. Tune in and bliss out. Harpist Elizabeth Steiner will perform from her home in Philadelphia.
This event is part of the Liminal States Series
Elizabeth Steiner enjoys a busy schedule as a freelance harpist in the Philadelphia area. An accomplished orchestral harpist, Elizabeth has most recently performed as principal harp with the Baltimore Symphony, the Philly Pops, Delaware Symphony, Orchestra 2001, and second harp with the Sarasota Orchestra, among others. Elizabeth currently performs in the all-female identifying, mostly BIPOC ensemble the Broadway Sinfonietta, which served as the orchestra for the musical Ratatousical, which raised over 2 million dollars for the Actors Fund and was watched by an audience of over 350,000. Further recent projects include an appearance in the designer Tia Adeola’s film ‘Le Noir Est Beau’ which premiered on Vogue.com in December 2020. Innovative and comfortable across genres, Ms. Steiner has performed with a wide variety of artists such as Moses Sumney, Leslie Odom Jr., and Josh Groban. She holds a Master’s of Music in Harp Performance from Temple University where she was awarded a scholarship to study with Elizabeth Hainen, and a Bachelor’s of Music from the Cleveland Institute of Music as a scholarship student under Yolanda Kondonassis. Elizabeth was awarded an inaugural Sphinx Organization LEAD Fellowship (Leaders in Excellence, Arts, and Diversity) for 2019 – 2020 and is currently a Fitler Club Fellow for 2020 – 2021. A passionate advocate for equitable access to quality harp education, she serves as a Teaching Artist for the Lyra Society at the Philadelphia High School for Girls, a non-profit that provides weekly free harp lessons to 30 students in Philadelphia.
