26 February 2012 Concert Lavinia Meijer (harp)
“My goal is to make the harp better known as a solo instrument. Very few people are aware of its almost endless possibilities.” (Lavinia Meijer)

It is with great pride that we launch our 2012 concert series with harpist LAVINIA MEIJER (b. 1983), one of the world’s most versatile harpists of our time. After performing as a soloist with renowned orchestras and recitals from America to Asia, Lavinia will be making a stop-over at our factory at noon on 26 February. Face to face with the Wonderwall by artist Jan van der Ploeg, she will be shedding new light on both ‘Metamorphosis’ by Philip Glass – which she adapted for the harp – and the work of art itself which can be transformed as well.
You can also enjoy a lecture by Jan van der Ploeg at 14:00 at the same location. For more information on his solo exhibition, click here.
