“Enchanting Tale of a Harp Hero”

Tasha Robinson – will be our speaker and musician. Let’s go on a musical journey with Tasha the Happening Harp Hero. We will discover together all the sounds that a harp can make from thunder to a rainstorm across the desert. This journey is with the audience and Tasha together finding their way. Audience participation is a must as you help Tasha make choices on her journey in both the harp as a sound effects expert as well as an incredible storyteller! We will all discover how mesmerizing the harp can be especially when movement, song and storytelling are present.
