When intrepid harpist Rachel Lee Hall isn't soloing on the stage, she's hard at work creating new connections as an educator. In this event, Rachel shares the story of her recent publication of the Purpose in Practice journal, and features works by Bach, Puccini, Kondonassis, Saint-Saëns, and a new arrangement of Quilter's "Shakespeare Songs" created and performed by Rachel and her brother, cellist Justin Hall.

Astral Nova features seven digital events over the course of the 2020/2021 season, highlighting performances, discussions, artistic collaborations, and plenty of surprises. Each event represents a unique artist-driven vision and the opportunity to rise to new heights of innovation, intimacy, and connection.
