Charlene Chin presents “Songs to the Moon”, a harp recital featuring works by Debussy, Dvořák, Schafer and Lizotte.

About Charlene Chin

Originally from Seattle, Charlene Chin traveled to Toronto, pursing an undergrad at the Glenn Gould School of Music with internationally acclaimed harpist, Judy Loman and TSO principal harpist Heidi Bearcroft. She returned to the United States at the Indiana University Jacob School of Music studying with Florence Sitruk who furthered her interests in contemporary music and creating original harp transcriptions. Later, she returned to Toronto (after a certain global phenomena) where her studies continued at the University of Toronto.

Charlene currently resides in Toronto where she performs with orchestras such as the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, National Ballet of Canada, Manitoba Chamber Orchestra and more. Outside of music, she spends her time baking and seeking pet therapy, generously donated by the kind outdoor cats in her neighborhood.
