The joint Peabody and Christopher Newport University Harp Ensemble is honored to be a part of the Franciscan Monastery’s Spring Luncheon.  Past performances include the National Cherry Blossom Festival, the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and Governor Larry Hogan’s (R-MD) National Day of Prayer Breakfast and Holiday Open House.  They recently gave the world premiere of Dr. Evan Meier’s Variations on an Antique Theme, commissioned specifically for them for the Les Harpes Camac Festival by founder and director, Dr. Anastasia Pike.

Also, as a tribute to all the moms at the luncheon, Dr. Anastasia Pike and her students will accompany Father Benjamin while he sings the Ave Maria.
