BOP STOP at The Music Settlement
2920 Detroit Avenue
Cleveland, OH 44113
This performance is part of the 4th annual NEOSonicFest, presented by Cleveland Chamber Symphony.
Stephan Haluska is a harpist, composer, and improviser based in Cleveland, OH. He creates abstract compositions for harp exploring its idiomatic textural, harmonic, and percussive qualities. The harp has developed quite the mystical identity in western culture as the sound of angels in heaven, magic, and dream sequences. In his music, Stephan both plays with and challenges these stereotypes, in attempt to (de)mystify the harp.
Stephan will play a collection of original pieces with various degrees of improvisation. This music will be featured on his forthcoming release.
