The Atlanta Harpestra, founded by our AFTH Executive Director Lyrika Holmes is a premiere contemporary harp ensemble. The purpose for this ensemble is to provide Artz for the Harp students with opportunities to perform with students of all levels and ages around the Atlanta and surrounding areas. The ensemble strengthen's our learning communities through our integrated mentoring programs listed below:

Peer to Peer Harp Program, - students work with peers from different parts of Georgia to learn new skills, reinforce prior learned materials and build relationships.

The Harp Haven Mentorship Program,- provides students of all ages opportunities to be mentored by professional harpists in the community as well as worldwide artists.

From Me to You Intergenerational Harp Program-   this program partners our younger harpists with our senior harpists to build generational bonds, and provide experiences for students of all ages to learn from each other in a safe and fun atmosphere.

Through the integration of our learning communities, The Atlanta Harpestra thrives. Our focus is on providing musical opportunities that otherwise would be unavailable to our students. We work to develop the whole musician preparing our harpists for life on and off the stage.

The coaching received through the Atlanta Harpestra allows students the opportunity to participate in master classes with worldwide professional artists as well as local community professionals. Beyond the enrichment of the musical learning experience, students also build relationships with peers and community members that will positively impact them.
