Take a break from the work week and enjoy lunch with a side of music at Mary Eddy’s Kitchen x Lounge. Gaye LeBlanc, a local classical/pop harpist, will be performing in the lounge as a part of the Art Moves initiative by Arts Council OKC.
About the Artist
Professor Gaye LeBlanc, a Texas native, has been building the University of Oklahoma harp department since 1997. Under her leadership, the additions of two new Lyon & Healy concert grand harps were made in 2003 and 2005, thanks to generous donors. The harp program includes a harp ensemble and study of harp orchestral literature and pedagogy.
Ms. LeBlanc has been principal harpist with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic since 1996. She has also played principal harp with the Tulsa Opera, Roswell (NM) Symphony, and Lawton Philharmonic, and is currently principal harpist with the Fort Smith (AR) Symphony, where she has played since 2003. LeBlanc is also adjunct harp faculty with Oklahoma City University and the University of Central Oklahoma, and recently accepted a one-year position on the faculty of the University of North Texas, commuting two days a week. She has been harp faculty with the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute (from 1999 to 2004) and Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp, and principal harpist with the OK Mozart Festival.
