Austrian harpist Elisabeth Plank at NKU

Celebrated Austrian harpist Elisabeth Plank is coming to Northern Kentucky all the way from Austria to perform at Northern Kentucky University (NKU) on Saturday, March 30 at 7:00 p.m. Currently, on a concert tour of the U.S., Plank has established herself as an internationally sought-after soloist and ambassador for her instrument and has been described as “an exceptional player, great command of her instrument, so much character & color in her playing” by BBC Radio, Scotland. It is Plank’s ambition to redefine the harp’s repertoire, by performing and recording newly rediscovered pieces from the past, documented by many world premiere recordings, as well as collaborating with contemporary composers. As a recitalist or as a soloist with an orchestra, Plank has performed in renowned concert halls and festivals in Europa, Japan, and Latin America. Plank is a prize winner in a number of international competitions and was honored with the "Young Celebrity Master"-award of “HarpMasters.”

Co-sponsored by Northern Kentucky University School of the Arts (SOTA), the Cincinnati Chapter of the American Harp Society, the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), and the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA), the recital will take place at Greaves Concert Hall, Northern Kentucky University (NKU), 141 Fine Arts Building, 1 Louie B Nunn Drive, Highland Heights, KY 41076.
