      I don’t actually have a very satisfying answer to this question. I don’t remember why I wanted to play the harp (I don’t even remember the period of time when I wanted to play but didn’t yet), and my parents apparently never got an answer out of me… so no one seems to know! My mother thinks she remembers something about the angels in cartoons, but even when first starting out classical harp, those instruments are very different from the ones in cartoons, so if that had truly been my motivation I think I would have complained from the outset.

      I have competed in a small, lower level international competition here in the USA. Right now, I’m working on some big projects, but I will not say the specifics, at least for now. Which competition in Geneva are you referring to?
