Harpist Alix Raspé has been a student of harp since age 8. Described as spellbinding, Alix is currently a sophomore majoring in Harp Performance at New York University. Alix attended Juilliard Pre-College from 2009-2010, 2010-2011. In 2007, Alix received the Annapolis Music Festival Maestro Award as an outstanding soloist.

This summer, Alix will attend Aspen Music Festival and School and study with both Deborah Hoffman and Nancy Allen. You can hear Alix on RuPaul’s Season Five Drag Races as well as on film in Reservation Road and Bravo TV’s Million Dollar Listing. Last summer Alix had the unique experience of teaching several young harpists and flutists’ ensemble skills at Elyrica Summer Harp and Flute Camp. This later inspired her to found own branch of MetroHarp, a non-profit organization for harpists in the Metropolitan area, MetroHarp Young Harpist’s Alliance (YHA) for several young harpists to strive and perform together. As an orchestra harpist, Alix has had the distinct privilege of performing with the Juilliard Pre-College Symphony and Orchestra, Manchester Music Festival, NYU Symphony Orchestra, NYU Philharmonia, QUO, Hellenic Music Ensemble, Norwalk Youth Symphony, and the Interlochen Symphony and Concert Orchestras, the Stamford Young Artists Orchestra and the Music for the Planet Improvisational Ensemble in its Winter Solstice Concerts.

Alix is an extremely talented and versatile harpist who provided heavenly music for my ceremony.

Alix has been playing harp a long time, I am pretty sure she can play anything. At the last minute I requested that she accompany my cousin to sing Ave Maria, Alix went with the flow and played the song from scratch even though it was not in the key she already knew.

A long time before my ceremony Alix sent me a list of songs she liked, I went through and sent her a list of the ones I wanted to use and the order. After that I kind of spaced out on providing her with more detailed information, nonetheless Alix was able to read what was going on around her and play and stop the songs at the right time as the ceremony proceeded. Had I remembered to tell her in advance, I would have had her play the songs all the way through and drag the processional out, the songs were so lovely to listen to, very peaceful and uplifting. I entered to the Swan Lake Cadenza which sounded completely magical and amazing, that song was the perfect length for my entry into the ceremony.

Alix arrived at my venue several hours in advance to practice and set up, when I heard the harp music drifting up the stairs to the room where I was getting ready, I was so delighted. She produces an ethereal sound, I was sad that as the bride I could not just sit there and listen to her play. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants a beautiful and special instrument to be played with great skill at their ceremony.
